Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Arkansas's regulations regarding characteristic wastes are the same as the federal. In fact, Arkansas's regulations mirror, to the greatest extent possible, the federal hazardous waste management regulations. The federal regulations in 40 CFR 261 have been adopted verbatim and have been modified only to represent the proper points of contact under the authorized state program. For example, Arkansas substitutes the ADEQ director for the reference to the EPA regional administrator in the federal regulations. For ease of cross-reference to the equivalent federal regulations, all paragraph numberings in the state regulations are the same as in the federal. The federal characteristic waste requirements are described in the national section CHARACTERISTIC WASTE.

Wastes may be classified as hazardous because of their characteristics or if they have been placed on hazardous waste lists by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. See the state sections HAZWASTE DETERMINATION (CLASSIFICATION) and LISTED WASTES for additional guidance.

Although Arkansas has received EPA authorization to administer the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) rules, ADEQ does not have authority to delist RCRA wastes. The federal rules and procedures for delisting petitions are effective in Arkansas. See the national section DELISTING PETITIONS for more information.
