See national section for basic information and federal regulations.

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. EPA, under the authority of RCRA, oversees a nationwide program for the management of hazardous waste, from its generation to disposal. RCRA provides that a state may apply to EPA for authorization to operate its own program in lieu of the RCRA program. Iowa initially adopted a state hazardous waste management program but returned its authority to EPA in 1985. While hazardous waste rules remain in the state's Administrative Code, the federal rules for identifying and classifying hazardous waste are in effect in Iowa. Refer to the national section HAZWASTE DETERMINATION (CLASSIFICATION) for more information on the federal rules for identifying and classifying hazardous waste.

Administration and enforcement. Because Iowa is not an RCRA-authorized state, EPA's Region 7 office administers and enforces the hazardous waste identification and classification rules in Iowa.
