Functional Equivalence

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 1
Project Description The process of determining equivalence for state regulations implementing new federal rules has been cumbersome and fraught with controversy. State rules, even those that might offer greater environmental protection, are not always deemed "equivalent," and are not allowed. The new process, two years in development, will create guidance for the EPA Regions to allow more flexibility in determining equivalence for state rules. The guidance is expected to be issued by the EPA Office of Solid Waste (OSW) in the fall of 2005.
