Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Statutory Checklist

The RCRA Statutory Checklist includes the statutory provisions listed on the original state legislation checklist, which states completed as part of the base program authorization and the hazardous and solid waste statutory checklist. The checklist is provided to aid attorneys and others in reviewing and documenting state hazardous waste enabling authority for authorization under Section 3006(b) of RCRA. It is also provided to aid attorneys and others in documenting and reviewing a state’s enabling authority as a result of renumbering, restructuring, or changes to the state’s statutes that may impact authorization. EPA attorneys are encouraged to involve attorneys in a state’s attorney general’s office or other state legal counsel during such reviews.
