Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Virginia has adopted by reference the federal requirements for management of used oil. The only additional state requirement is that Virginia's rule prohibiting the use of used oil as a dust suppressant has deleted the federal provision that allows the state to petition federal EPA to allow such use (9 VAC 20-60-279(B)(1)).
• Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Waste Division administers and enforces the used oil management rules in Virginia.
