Are You Ready? The Clock is Ticking to Comply with New EPA Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals Rule
AGG Seminars & Webinars
May 2, 2019

On February 22, 2019, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published its final rule revising management standards for hazardous waste pharmaceuticals, which will take effect August 2019. Healthcare facilities that provide a host of healthcare-related services or distribute, sell or dispense pharmaceuticals, and reverse distributors of pharmaceuticals will need to learn a whole new set of regulations under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), or risk being assessed steep penalties.

Register now for this one-hour complimentary webinar with AGG Attorneys Brooke Dickerson and Jennifer Hilliard as they navigate you through the new regulatory framework included in this rule and the possible implications for a range of healthcare facilities including: hospitals, health clinics, skilled nursing facilities, long-term care facilities, in-patient hospice facilities, pharmacies, and others.

Our speakers will outline:

  • The complexities of the new rule
  • What the rules means for you and your facility
  • What to do next given the short time frame to prepare

At the forefront of providing insight into this new rule, Ms. Dickerson and Ms. Hilliard have appeared in leading publications such as McKnight’s Long-Term Care News and will be featured speakers at upcoming American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) and The Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) events.

There will be an opportunity for Q&A following the presentation.
