This report summarizes the estimated economic impacts of the marking and disposal regulations for PCBs which are being proposed in fulfillment of the requirements of Section 6(e) of the Toxic Substances Control Act. The scope of this analysis included estimates of the quantities of PCBs and equipment containing PCBs which will be affected by the proposed regulations, the present and required future availability, feasibility, and costs of the required PCB disposal facilities, the secondary costs of controlled disposal including storage, recordkeeping, and transportation, and the costs of satisfying the various marking requirements. The economic analysis included estimates of the additional costs of complying with these regulations as a function of year and economic sector. The analysis also considered the possible economic effects of these costs on price levels, investment requirements, and employment. Finally, the effects of compliance on energy requirements and on the availability of strategic materials were estimated.
