EPA/SWER RIN: 2050-AG20 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Hazardous Waste Manifest Revisions--Standards and Procedures for Electronic Manifests 
Abstract: The "Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest Establishment Act" was signed into law by the President on October 5, 2012, which established the authority to collect fees, as well as the development of an electronic submission system. The Act requires that the EPA issue regulations that authorize the use of electronic manifests in lieu of the current manifest form (i.e., EPA Form 8700-22 and 8700-22A). Pursuant to the Act, this action is aimed at finalizing the development of EPA's Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulatory standards and procedures that will govern the initiation, signing, transmittal, and retention of hazardous waste manifests using electronic documents and systems. There are a total of 5.1 million manifests processed each year, including State-defined hazardous waste paper manifests. EPA proposed electronic manifest standards in May 2001 as part of a more general manifest revision action that also addressed standardizing the paper manifest form's data elements and procedures (EPA Form 8700-22). The May 2001 electronic manifest proposed rule was a standards-based decentralized approach under which EPA would establish and maintain the standards that would guide the development of electronic manifest systems by private sector entities that chose to participate in the system. Since the proposal the Agency has continued its engagement with affected industry, states and the general public to solicit input on the development of a nationwide e-manifest system and published an e-manifest approach in an April 18, 2006, Notice of Data Availability. EPA envisions that an e-manifest system will facilitate the electronic transmittal of manifests throughout the hazardous waste shipping process, including enabling better transparency by sharing data with the public at appropriate stages. This rule does not address the collection of fees, which will be dealt with in a subsequent rulemaking.
