June 25 Webinar to Focus on New Pharmaceutical Hazardous Waste Rule

May 28, 2019

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently published its final Pharmaceutical Hazardous Waste rule that modifies management standards for hazardous waste pharmaceuticals at health care facilities. On June 25, WHA is offering a complimentary webinar to members, The Pharmaceutical Hazardous Waste Rule – What Hospitals Need to Know, to focus on this new rule.

Subject matter experts from Quarles & Brady will review the EPA’s imposed modified management standards for hazardous waste pharmaceuticals at health care facilities and reverse distributors, in addition to amending the acute hazardous waste listing for nicotine. Implementation of the new rule will require an evaluation and potential revision of waste management practices at many impacted facilities, including pharmaceutical reverse distributors and health care facilities (e.g., hospitals, clinics, dental practices, long term care facilities, veterinary clinics or hospitals, pharmacies, drug wholesalers, and retail stores that sell pharmaceuticals).

The webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, June 25, from 1:30 -2:45 pm. This WHA Member Forum is complimentary and open only to WHA hospital and corporate members, but pre-registration is required to participate. Registration is now open.
