Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Florida follows federal regulations for the storage and disposal of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and PCB items with additional soil treatment and drinking water monitoring requirements. See the national section PCB MANAGEMENT for additional information.

Unlike other federal acts, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) does not delegate authority to the states to run the federal PCB program. Therefore, a facility must comply with both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state regulations. Although the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulations do not apply to PCBs, states may list and regulate PCBs as hazardous waste under their state RCRA programs.

Administration and enforcement. EPA's Region 4 office administers and enforces the federal regulations for storage and disposal of PCBs and PCB items in Florida. The DEQ administers and enforces the state requirements.
