• Rules. Colorado has EPA authorization to delist wastes. Colorado's rules and procedures for delisting follow the federal regulations. Any person seeking to exclude a waste at a particular generating facility from the lists in Subpart D of 6 CCR 1007-3 Part 261 may petition for a regulatory amendment. See the national section DELISTING PETITIONS for guidance on the information needed to apply for and obtain an exclusion from regulation for a particular waste at a specific facility.
• Administration and enforcement. Delisting petitions are reviewed by and acted on by CDPHE's Hazardous Waste Commission using similar review procedures as used by EPA Region 8.
