In some cases, eligible academic entities may choose not to opt into the Academic Laboratories Rulemaking (Part 262 Subpart K), which establishes alternative generator regulations for the management of hazardous waste at their laboratories.  In other cases, laboratories that generate hazardous waste are not owned by eligible academic entities and therefore are not eligible to participate in Subpart K.  In both situations, these laboratories will most likely operate under the RCRA regulations as satellite accumulation areas (40 CFR 262.34(c)).
