Washington — The Environmental Protection Agency has told the ADA that it will delay releasing a final amalgam separator rule until December.
The agency previously announced it would release the rule in June.

In 2015 the Association said it was “encouraged” by the EPA’s willingness to work with the profession as it develops its rule.

In February 2015, the Association commented on a draft of the rule by noting that the ADA’s support “is contingent only on the final rule complying with nine common-sense principles” and reaffirming its “support of a pretreatment rule that requires amalgam separators consistent with these nine principles.”
