Small Business Review Panel Of CERCLA Financial Responsibility Requirements For Hard Rock Mining

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking self nominations from small businesses to participate in a Small Business Advocacy Review (SBAR) panel on a proposed rule that would establish financial responsibility requirements for classes of facilities within the hard rock mining industry. The requirements will be developed under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (Superfund).

The Regulatory Flexibility Act requires EPA to establish a federal panel for rules that may have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The SBAR panel will also include representatives from the Small Business Administration, the Office of Management and Budget and EPA.

The panel will ask a selected group of Small Entity Representatives (SERs), to provide advice and recommendations on the proposed rule to the panel. The agency is seeking self-nominations directly from small entities that may be subject to the rule requirements. Self-nominations may be submitted through December 20, 2010.
