TITLE 329 SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT DIVISION

IC 13-14-9.5-1.1 NOTICE OF REVIEW OF NONEXPIRING RULES
LSA Document #22-125


This is a notice of rule review as described in IC 13-14-9.5-1.1. Certain rules described in IC 13-14-9.5-1.1 do not expire after seven years. These types of rules are: (1) rules required to receive or maintain delegation, primacy, or approval for implementation or operation of a program established under federal law; and (2) rules required to begin or continue receiving federal funding for implementation or operation of a program.
The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) is required to publish a list of these rules that have been effective for seven years and request comment, in a 30 day comment period, on any specific rule that should be reviewed through the regular rulemaking process under IC 13-14-9. IDEM must also notice a public hearing before the Environmental Rules Board (board). IDEM will respond to all comments received during the comment period and provide the comments and responses to the board during the public hearing. The board, after considering the comments, responses, and testimony at the hearing, will direct IDEM on whether additional rulemaking actions must be started to address concerns raised to the board.
IC 13-14-9.5-1 provides that chapter 9.5 does not apply to "a rule that incorporates a federal regulation by reference or adopts under a federal mandate a federal regulation in its entirety without substantive additions." Therefore, those rules are not subject to this notice of readoption; however, for the reader's information, a list of exempt rules is included in this notice.

IC 13-14-9-4(a)(5) THROUGH IC 13-14-9-4(a)(7) IDENTIFICATION OF RESTRICTIONS AND REQUIREMENTS NOT IMPOSED UNDER FEDERAL LAW
IC 13-14-9.5-1.1 requires this notice to contain the information described under IC 13-14-9-4(a)(5) through IC 13-14-9-4(a)(7) regarding restrictions and requirements of the listed rules that are not imposed under federal law. No element of the listed rules imposes either a restriction or requirement on persons to whom the rule applies that is not imposed under federal law.
The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), codified at 42 U.S.C. 6901 et seq., is the authorizing federal law for the management of solid waste. With the approval of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) under 40 CFR 239, state programs may issue permits for solid waste management and land disposal facilities that implement U.S. EPA requirements authorized under RCRA. In addition, requirements at 40 CFR 256 provide guidelines for the development and implementation of state solid waste management plans. Indiana has an approved state solid waste management program with requirements for solid waste land disposal facilities in 329 IAC 10 and processing facilities in 329 IAC 11.
Hazardous waste management is federally authorized under 42 U.S.C. 6921 et seq., with specific U.S. EPA hazardous waste regulations at 40 CFR 260 through 270 and 40 CFR 273. In accordance with 42 U.S.C. 6926, the U.S. EPA granted IDEM the authority to administer and enforce a hazardous waste program in Indiana. To maintain authorization for this program, IDEM must comply with the requirements for state authorization in 40 CFR 271. Indiana has adopted requirements in 329 IAC 3.1 for the management of hazardous waste.
The U.S. EPA regulates underground storage tank (UST) owners and operators under 42 U.S.C. 6991 et seq., and allows states to maintain their own regulatory programs. Approved state UST programs must comply with the corresponding federal regulations at 40 CFR 280 and 281, which set standards for UST installation, ownership, operation, release prevention, release detection and reporting, closure, and approval of state UST programs. IDEM has an approved state UST program with requirements for UST owners and operators in 329 IAC 9.
