The United States Environmental Protection Agency promulgated the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Effluent Guidelines and Standards (40 CFR Part 439) in 1976 and amended the regulation in 1983, 1998 and 2003. The Effluent Guidelines are incorporated into NPDES permits for direct dischargers, and permits or other control mechanisms for indirect dischargers for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Industry (PMI) facilities.
The regulation applies to facilities organized into five subcategories:
A. Fermentation Products
B. Extraction Products
C. Chemical Synthesis Products
D. Mixing/Compounding and Formulation
