Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. California has not received final authorization under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to delist RCRA wastes. All delisting petitions must be filed with EPA Region 9. See the national section DELISTING PETITIONS for information for the federal delisting petition requirements. In addition to the federal RCRA listed hazardous wastes, California has adopted its own hazardous waste listings. See the state sections HAZWASTE DETERMINATION (CLASSIFICATION) and LISTED WASTES for more information on hazardous waste status and exclusions.

Administration and enforcement. While EPA Region 9 administers and enforces the RCRA hazardous waste delisting procedures in California, Cal/EPA administers and enforces the state reclassification and variance rules.

State Requirements
