Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Connecticut has adopted training requirements for personnel who load gasoline and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Connecticut has adopted the federal hazardous waste transporter rules, by reference, and has added requirements for transporter safety training that are stricter than federal rules. The state has also adopted its own training rules for Covered Electronic Recyclers, medical waste disposal, solid waste facility operators, and water and wastewater treatment system operators.

Administration and enforcement. DEEP administers and enforces the training rules for gasoline loading and dispensing facilities, hazardous waste transporters, medical waste disposal, solid waste facility operators, and wastewater treatment system operators.
