RCRA Regulation of PCB Wastes [RCRA 40 CFR 261.8]
According to 40
CFR 261.8, PCB-containing dielectric fluid, as well as electrical equipment
containing such fluid, that is authorized for use and regulated under 40
CFR 761 and that is hazardous only because it fails the test for the
Toxicity Characteristic for hazardous waste codes D018 through D043, is exempt
from regulation under 40
CFR 261 through 265, and 40
CFR 268, 270, and 124.
Such wastes are also exempt from the notification requirements of RCRA Section 3010.
However, PCB-containing dielectric fluid that otherwise displays
a characteristic (D001 - D017), would be subject to both RCRA hazardous waste
and TSCA regulations.
