The establishment of standards for toxic substances discharge from industrial sources is extremely complex due to the wide range of current and proposed legislation related to toxic substances as well as the regulation options available under PL 92-500. Accordingly, an analysis of current and proposed legislation was undertaken to prepare a guidance document which will provide a means for analyzing legislation and standard setting impacts and assist in implementing Sec. 307. The results of this study will be of direct use to the Administrator of EPA as a guide to overlaps or omissions in the regulatory controls over which he has the major responsibility and help delineate and define the mandate of Sec. 307 of PL 92-500. The results of the study are being utilized by ES&WQIAC pursuant to its responsibilities and have already proven of value to Congress in developing the new Toxic Substances Control bill.
