CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS TITLE 40 PROTECTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT

The Congress of the United States passes laws (statutes) to address issues and concerns of importance to the country. In most instances, implementation of the requirements contained in these statutes is accomplished through regulations that are adopted by the federal government agency responsible for administering a specific part of a law. These regulations are contained in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and are grouped by different titles, according to the specific area of interest that the regulations address.

Title 40 regulations range in scope from establishing the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), to proper management of liquid, solid and hazardous wastes, to an energy policy for motor vehicles, to establishing the Council on Environmental Quality. A general outline of the subchapter divisions of Title 40 is presented below. Parts that are particularly pertinent to the manufacturing processes discussed in this Self Audit and Inspection Guide are highlighted and presented in greater detail. Specific permit or environmental compliance requirements are not presented and must be determined either through the permitting process or in consultation with EPA or State and local environmental departments.

The following steps should be taken to review the full text of the pertinent CFR citation:

1. Note the appropriate citation numbers (e.g., 40CFR60.8, 40CFR125.68, etc.) that you want to review.

2. Follow the link to the Government Printing Office (GPO) Access website and follow the instructions for entering the CFR citation.
