Guidelines for State Adoption of Federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Regulations by Reference

This document serves as a brief guideline for adopting the federal code by reference. This guidance was developed from the following:

  2. Input from Debra Craig, EPA Region 2 and Jerry Sanger, Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality; and
  3. Working with regulations as part of State authorization package review.
