A workshop, held as a part of the 11th Annual Waste Testing and Quality Assurance Symposium, which brought together Federal and State regulators, the regulated community and the commercial laboratory sector, served as a forum for discussion of how the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) should set Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulatory action levels when the risk- or technology-based levels are below what can be measured with generally available measurement technologies. The goal of the workshop was twofold. The first was to help the Agency solve this problem with the RCRA program. The second was to foster the Agency's goal of using, to the maximum extent possible, consistent approaches in establishing monitoring requirements and procedures in all Agency regulatory programs.
