Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Ohio adopts the federal hazardous materials regulations as they apply to hazardous materials transporters. All persons who transport hazardous materials (which includes hazardous wastes) into or through Ohio must apply to the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) for a uniform hazardous materials registration and permit. This requirement is applicable to all "motor carriers." Hazardous waste transporters must comply with additional state discharge notification and manifest requirements in addition to all federal transporter regulations. See the state section HAZARDOUS WASTE TRANSPORTERS for more information on these requirements.
• Administration and enforcement. PUCO and the Ohio State Highway Patrol enforce the rules for hazardous materials transportation in Ohio. The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles issues commercial driver's licenses in the state.
