Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Louisiana has EPA authorization to delist Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) listed wastes generated at specific facilities in Louisiana. Louisiana follows the federal rules for delisting petitions.
Note: Since EPA authorizes Louisiana to administer a delisting program in lieu of the federal program under RCRA, any EPA exclusion does not apply in such authorized states. If the petitioned waste will be transported to or managed in any state with delisting authorization, the petitioner must obtain delisting authorization from that state before managing the waste as non-hazardous in the state.
If the petitioner will transport or manage the waste in a nonauthorized state, the waste may be regulated under a dual system. EPA recommends that petitioners contact relevant state and EPA regional offices to determine where to submit the delisting petition.
• Administration and enforcement. DEQ administers and enforces the rules for delisting petitions in Louisiana. EPA Region 6 administers and enforces the federal delisting rules.
