The following rules or groups of related rules are currently in some stage of the rule development process, either in initial development, in the formal rulemaking process or adopted and in effect. Each rule or group of rules goes through a process where interested parties are able to provide comments, either on the regulatory impact report for the rule or rules (when required), or on the proposed rules themselves once they have been published in the Missouri Register.

Whether commenting on the regulatory impact report or on the proposed rules themselves, please pay attention to the dates for the comment period and provide comments in the time frames indicated. For the regulatory impact report, all comments received will be posted with responses prior to filing as a proposed rulemaking. After the rules have been filed and published in the Missouri Register, interested parties will have another opportunity to comment during the comment period which begins with publication of the rules and ends seven days after the public hearing. As with the regulatory impact report, comments and responses on proposed rules will be published in the Order of Rulemaking for individual rules. Thank you for your interest and assistance in developing these rules.

Amendments to Rules in Title 10, Division 25 of the Code of State Regulations

The Hazardous Waste Program has filed a group of proposed amendments to the hazardous waste regulations identified as part of the Red Tape Reduction review process. The proposed changes include revised requirements for hazardous waste container labeling, hazardous waste generator satellite accumulation areas, and rescission of the Missouri-only requirements for resource recovery facilities. 

The rules were published in the Missouri Register on July 16and the comment period is open until Sept. 20.  The rules are available by scrolling down on the Department of Natural Resources Proposed Rules page. 

Each rule has a “Submit Comment” button activated by which comments may be submitted through the webpage.  Comments may also be submitted by following the instructions in the public hearing notice that is at the end of each rule published in the Missouri Register. The public hearing on the amendments will be held during the Missouri Hazardous Waste Management Commission meeting at 10 a.m. on Sept. 13.

For questions about any of these rules or the rulemaking process, please contact Tim Eiken, Rules Coordinator of the Hazardous Waste Program at 573-522-8057.
