This memorandum transmits an addendum to the 'Interim CERCLA Settlement Policy' which was issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) on December 5, 1984. Because that guidance document does not apply to CERCLA cost recovery settlemments in which the parties are not agreeing to perform remedial design/remedial action work or a non-time critical removal, EPA and DOJ are issuing this addendum to provide the Regions with direction for addressing potential compromises of CERCLA cost recovery claims due to the existence of a significant orphan share.
