Pennsylvania also incorporates by reference the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule (New Rule), effective on the federal level and in Pennsylvania as of May 30, 2017. For large quantity generators (LQGs), this means that they must comply with the New Rule's requirement that the LQG provide a "quick reference guide" of the contingency plan to the local emergency responders identified in its plan or, as appropriate, the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC).
