RCRA Related e-Government Initiatives
The RCRA e-Government Inititiaves include:
- RCRA Related e-Government Initiatives
- RCRA Forms That Can Be Filled Out Electronically
- State e-forms
- Federal e-forms
- Online RCRA Hazardous Waste Forms/Applications
- Non-RCRA Related e-Government Initiatives
E-forms are forms that can be filed out on the computer and can be interactive.The state can set up a system to transfer the filled-in information without retyping.The most simple ones are downloadable files (like Adobe Acrobat forms or word processor forms) that have places to insert the specific information.
The more advanced forms are interactive and prompt the user with available choices, link to related state or federal regulations, have some data quality checks, and have additional tools that make the process more efficient. These forms can be created with a variety of software including web-based ones like Cold fusion for the more complex forms to Adobe Acrobat.State e-forms

We are examining the possibilities of e-permitting for the RCRA program. As a first step we evaluated existing state e-permitting systems to better understand system capabilities and implementation issues. We are recently developed criteria to evaluate features for workable e-permitting software.
RCRA-regulated entities will be able to request
a RCRA EPA ID number for new facilities or supply revisions to their
Notification of Regulated Waste Activity submissions - via the EPA's Central Data Exchange (CDX) web
site - through an application known as the RCRA Site Identification
You may e-mail (email@example.com) with comments about the RCRA Site Identification Form.
We are also looking at using CDX to allow facilities to file their RCRA Part A permit forms. If you wish to apply for a RCRA hazardous waste permit you must submit a hard copy (PDF) (46 pp, 886K, About PDF) of the RCRA forms.
