We Help Navigate Regulatory Complexities

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulates how drug waste is transported to waste management facilities. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) enforces the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) that regulates the storage, transportation, and disposal of hazardous pharmaceutical waste.
