Part III
Incorporation of Federal Regulations by Reference

A. Except as otherwise provided, those regulations of the United States Environmental Protection Agency set forth in Subparts A and B of 40 CFR Part 124, wherein they relate to RCRA programs, are hereby incorporated as part of the VHWMR. Except as otherwise provided, all material definitions, reference materials and other ancillaries that are a part of incorporated sections of 40 CFR Part 124 are also hereby incorporated as part of the Virginia Hazardous Waste Management Regulations.

B. In all locations in these regulations where text from 40 CFR Part 124 is incorporated by reference, the following additions, modifications and exceptions shall amend the incorporated text for the purpose of its incorporation into these regulations:

1. Other sections of these regulations, particularly in 9VAC20-60-270 and Part XIV (9VAC20-60-1370 et seq.) of this chapter, describe processes or procedures wherein items from 40 CFR Part 124 are applied as a part of more complete and detailed requirements. The incorporations of portions of 40 CFR Part 124 in this part shall not be construed so as to contradict or interfere with the operations of other parts of these regulations.

2. In addition to the citations in 40 CFR 124.5(a), permits may be modified, revoked and reissued, or terminated for reasons stated in 9VAC20-60-270 B and Part XIV (9VAC20-60-1370 et seq.) of this chapter.

3. Text of 40 CFR 124.5(b) is not incorporated into these regulations. Administrative appeal shall be conducted in accordance the Virginia Administrative Process Act (§ 2.2-4000 et seq. of the Code of Virginia).

4. In 40 CFR 124.5(d), 40 CFR 124.6(e), and 40 CFR 124.10(b), the term "Regional Administrator" shall mean the regional administrator of Region III of the United States Environmental Protection Agency or his designee.

5. In 40 CFR 124.5(d), 40 CFR 124.6(e), and 40 CFR 124.10(b), the term "EPA" shall mean the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

6. In 40 CFR 124.10(c)(1)(ii), the term "EPA" shall mean the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

7. In 40 CFR 124.10 procedures are described for giving public notice in newspapers and radio broadcast when a draft permit has been prepared (40 CFR 124.10(a)(1)(ii)) or when a public hearing will be held on the draft permit (40 CFR 124.10(b)(2)). The applicant for a permit shall arrange for the newspaper publication and radio broadcast and bear the cost of the publication and broadcast. The department shall send notification to the applicant that the publication and broadcast are required and the notification shall include the text of the notice, dates of publication and broadcast, and acceptable newspapers and radio stations wherein the notice may be published. The department may arrange for the newspaper publication and radio broadcast and require the applicant to remit the cost of such publication and broadcast.

8. In 40 CFR 124.19 an appeal process is established that includes certain appeals procedures that apply to the federal hazardous waste program, including the establishment of an EPA Environmental Appeals Board. These Virginia regulations do not incorporate this federal process. Appeals under these regulations will be in accordance with the Administrative Process Act, Chapter 40 (§ 2.2-4000 et seq.) of Title 2.2 of the Code of Virginia. All federal regulatory references to the appeal process or the EPA Environmental Appeals Board, such as in 40 CFR 124.5, shall be construed to mean the administrative processes and appeals processes as specified by Virginia's Administrative Process Act.

9. The petitioner for a variance from any regulation shall arrange for any newspaper publication and radio broadcast required under this chapter and to bear the cost of such publication and broadcast. The department shall send notification to the applicant that the publication and broadcast are required and the notification shall include the text of the notice, dates of publication and broadcast, and acceptable newspapers and radio stations wherein the notice may be published.
