Comparison: State vs. Federal

· Rules. Oregon's rules for imports of hazardous waste are the same as the federal requirements. For hazardous waste exported outside the United States, Oregon's rules are the same as the federal regulations, with one additional requirement. The state requires that copies of all forms or reports submitted to EPA under 40 CFR 262.53 also be submitted to DEQ for any hazardous waste shipped outside the United States (OAR 340-102-0050(2)).

· Administration and enforcement. DEQ administers and enforces the rules for exporting and importing hazardous waste. However, there may be some instances in which EPA has enforcement authority. Contact EPA before importing or exporting hazardous wastes.
