In May, 1979 EPA promulgated the original PCB ban rule, which permitted the manufacture, processing, distribution, and use of PCBs in concentrations less than 50 ppm. The Court remanded the rule to EPA because EPA did not present sufficient evidence to justify the 50 ppm cut-off decision. The Court ordered that a rule dealing with the incidental generation of PCBs in closed and controlled manufacturing processes be promulgated by October 13, 1982. EPA is promulgating a final rule which excludes closed and controlled processes from the PCB ban. This report estimates the costs and benefits of the final rule as well as the other regulatory alternatives considered by EPA.
