The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous waste permitting program helps ensure the safe treatment, storage, and disposal of hazardous wastes by establishing specific requirements that must be followed when managing those wastes.

E-permitting is electronic permitting. We plan to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the RCRA permitting program by assisting states that are investing in e-permitting systems, working with states to pilot RCRA e-permitting approaches, developing RCRA e-permitting tools, and facilitating the sharing of permit information with the public.
