Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Florida has adopted by reference the federal contingency plan requirements applicable to hazardous waste large quantity generators (LQGs); permitted hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs); and interim-status TSDFs. While, unlike LQGS, hazardous waste small quantity generators (SQGs) are not required to prepare and submit a written contingency plan in compliance with 40 CFR 265.50 to 265.56, SQGs have certain emergency response requirements as set forth in 40 CFR 262.34(d)(5) and described in the national section EMERGENCY PLANNING AND RESPONSE. Florida refers (albeit incorrectly) to these SQG requirements as "modified contingency plans for SQGs."

Administration and enforcement. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection's (DEP) Bureau of Solid and Hazardous Waste administers and enforces the contingency plan requirements in Florida.
