Updated to reflect the many developments that have taken place in lead regulation, this handbook provides legal interpretations that readers can apply to their own questions of product regulation, liability, and workplace regulations. This book details lead regulations and litigation from all of the related EPA and OSHA statutes, including the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Safe Drinking Water Act, Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act, Solid Waste Disposal Act, Consumer Product Safety Act, and Hazardous Materials Transportation Act. It also includes Department of Housing and Urban Development regulations, state regulations, and more. Changes and developments addressed in this edition include updated information on the production of lead and lead-containing products, new national emission standards for primary and secondary smelting, new water quality management and planning regulations, and updated water quality standards for state programs. This edition also examines revised thresholds for toxic chemical release reporting under EPCRA, amended municipal solid waste landfill regulations, EPA's consideration of a new national ambient air quality standard, and new studies of the health effects of lead, including cognitive effects on very young children. OSHA's National Emphasis Program for Lead and FDA's new guidance on lead content in candy likely to be consumed by small children are also covered.
