Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Utah follows the federal rules covering delisting of Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous wastes and has the authority to delist listed wastes in accordance with the federal rules.
• Administration and enforcement. The Utah Department of Environmental Quality's (DEQ) Solid and Hazardous Waste Control Board administers and enforces the delisting petition rules in Utah. Alternatively, petitioners seeking a delisting may send delisting petitions directly to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 8 office.
Petitioners may alternatively proceed under the provisions of 40 CFR 260.22 to have a particular waste delisted by the EPA. In the event delisting is granted by the EPA, the petitioner must notify the Board and the DEQ. The decision of the EPA is binding upon the Board and the DEQ unless, within 30 days after such notification, the Board specifically overrules EPA's decision. See the national section DELISTING PETITIONS for more information on petitioning EPA regional offices to delist RCRA wastes.
If the Board does overrule the EPA, the petitioner may petition the Board directly in accordance with R315-260-22
