On 12 February 1981, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ordered EPA to conduct a rulemaking concerning the use of Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) in electrical equipment. EPA is now authorizing the use of PCBs in eight types of equipment. This Regulatory Impact Analysis was prepared to accompany the final rule. For each equipment type, the base case is the case where the use of all PCB equipment is authorized indefinitely. Alternatives include equipment phase-outs of varying length, retrofilling, secondary containment, and inspection and maintenance programs to reduce spill volume and/or exposure. The benefits of alternative regulations are the avoided injury to health and environment that would otherwise have resulted from the incremental release of PCBs into the environment.
