Rules. Kansas incorporates by reference the federal regulations for the handling of universal wastes, including the regulations for mercury-containing equipment that were added in 2005. The state, however, had not adopted the federal regulations pertaining to petitions to add a hazardous waste or hazardous waste category to the universal waste management standards.

Administration and enforcement. KDHE's Bureau of Waste Management administers and enforces the universal waste rule in Kansas.
