Aaron H. Goldberg

Aaron Goldberg focuses on regulatory issues associated with hazardous wastes and consumer/industrial products. He started his career as a consultant to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), working on the development of the hazardous waste regulations under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). After a stint in the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB), he joined Beveridge & Diamond, P.C., where he has continued to concentrate on hazardous waste issues at the federal, state, and international levels.

Because much of Mr. Goldberg’s hazardous waste work has been related to management of end-of-life products, he has become increasingly involved with other product regulatory issues, as well. For example, he works extensively on U.S. and international rules for transport of hazardous materials or dangerous goods. He also spends considerable time on regulations designed to prevent the diversion of chemical products to illicit purposes, such as in the production of chemical weapons or illegal drugs.

Mr. Goldberg represents a number of companies and trade associations in a variety of industries, including chemicals, electronics, recycling, consumer products, petroleum, pharmaceuticals, steel, and mining. His practice encompasses the full range of regulatory services, from participating in the development of new laws/regulations to counseling clients on compliance strategies, and from applying for permits or variances to responding to enforcement actions.

In addition to being an attorney, Mr. Goldberg has a graduate degree in chemistry and extensive training and experience in economics. His varied background enables him to serve as a particularly effective bridge between engineers, business managers, attorneys, consultants, and regulators.
