Title:RESPONSE TO REQUEST FOR INFORMATION ON ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITY IN STATES
RCRA Online Number:11964
Date:02/03/1994
To:Richardson
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:Total Petroleum, Inc.
Description: Discusses the definition of base authorization. Whether the state or EPA enforces a rule depends on the state’s authorization status and whether the rule is HSWA or non-HSWA. A non-HSWA rule is not effective until a base-authorized state adopts it. HSWA rules are effective immediately in all states. EPA can enforce regulations that are part of an authorized state’s program, but EPA must enforce the state's standards, which may be more stringent than federal standards. Subtitle D permitting and enforcement is left to the states.
