Comparison: State vs. Federal

• Rules. Wastes may be classified as hazardous because of their characteristics or if they have been placed on hazardous waste lists by the EPA. The federal lists of hazardous wastes are effective in Iowa. The federal listed hazardous wastes are reviewed in the national section LISTED WASTES.

Iowa follows the federal regulations for identifying and classifying hazardous waste, including the federal regulations that contain the criteria for identifying hazardous waste by the characteristics of ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, and toxicity. See the national section CHARACTERISTIC WASTE for more information.

Iowa follows the federal rules for petitions to delist hazardous wastes. For additional information, see the national section DELISTING PETITIONS.

Iowa initially adopted a state hazardous waste management program but returned its authority to the 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. See the national section HAZWASTE DETERMINATION (CLASSIFICATION) for additional information.

Administration and enforcement. Iowa does not have RCRA authority; therefore, EPA's Region 7 office administers and enforces RCRA hazardous waste management rules in Iowa.
