The rule checklist (commonly referred to as the Revision Checklist) is a tool designed to assist states in developing their program modifications and authorization application packages, and in documenting specific state analogs to the federal regulations. Each checklist outlines specific changes to the federal regulations made by one or more related federal final rules published in the Federal Register. Revision Checklists are not required for state authorization; however, for states that do not incorporate the federal regulations by reference, EPA recommends that a state submit completed Revision Checklists to help the EPA region locate and review the changes made to the regulations by the state.

The list below provides links to the Revision Checklists for individual Clusters and annual State Program Advisorys (SPAs). Older Cluster/SPA pages contain a SPA Summary, a model AG Statement, and for each Revision Checklist, (a) the checklist itself, (b) a checklist summary, (c) the Federal Register notice(s) for the final rules upon which the Revision Checklist is based. More recent Cluster/SPA pages do not contain a model AG Statement. Instead, a model AG Certification can be found on the Express Authorization Documents page.

A "Cluster" is a set of rule checklists developed for federal rules promulgated between July 1 and June 30 of any given year. Each year, EPA publishes a State Program Advisory (SPA) which describes what documents have been developed for a particular Cluster. The documents in each SPA include new Revision Checklists, changes to existing checklists from a previous Cluster, a model AG Statement, Consolidated Checklists, and other guidance materials consisting of (1) the Map of Revision Checklist Materials which provides a good summary of the relationship between the SPAs, Federal promulgation dates of final rules, Revision Checklists, and Clusters; (2) two tables (Table G-1 and Table G-2) which provide a list of all the Revision Checklists, organized in different ways and which include the due dates for States to submit authorization applications; (3) the Revision Checklist Linkage Table shows which Revision Checklists are related; and (4) a list of Superseded Checklists. For example, RCRA Cluster XXI includes Revision Checklists 225 through 227 and is based on Federal rules published between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011. RCRA Cluster XXI documents are found in SPA 32.
