The SIR does not require the use of a particular application form. Section 239.3 of the SIR, however, requires that all state applications contain the following five components: (1) A transmittal letter requesting permit program approval. (2) A narrative description of the state permit program, including a demonstration that the state’s standards for non-municipal, non-hazardous waste disposal units that receive CESQG hazardous waste are technically comparable to the Part 257, Subpart B criteria and/or that its MSWLF standards are technically comparable to the Part 258 criteria. (3) A legal certification demonstrating that the state has the authority to carry out the program. (4) Copies of state laws, regulations, and guidance that the state believes demonstrate program adequacy. (5) Copies of relevant state-tribal agreements if the state has negotiated with a tribe for the implementation of a permit program for non-municipal, nonhazardous waste disposal units that receive CESQG hazardous waste and/or MSWLFs on tribal lands. The EPA Administrator has delegated the authority to make determinations of adequacy, as contained in the statute, to the EPA Regional Administrator. The appropriate EPA Regional Office, therefore, will use the information provided by each state to determine whether the state’s permit program satisfies the statutory test reflected in the requirements of 40 CFR part 239. In all cases, the information will be analyzed to determine the adequacy of the state’s permit program for ensuring compliance with the federal revised criteria. Form Numbers: None.
