However, EPA believes that amendments to RCRA now in conference will shortly be enacted and will change the date for determining when a facility is an “existing facility” to one no earlier than May of 1980; indications are the conferees are considering October 30, 1980. Accordingly, EPA encourages every owner or operator of a facility which was built or under construction as of the promulgation date of the RCRA program regulations to file Part A of its permit application so that it can be quickly processed for interim status when the change in the law takes effect.
