Title: User Fee Schedule for Electronic Hazardous Waste Manifest 

After promulgation of the first e-Manifest regulation in February 2014 to authorize the use of electronic manifests and to codify key provisions of the Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest Establishment Act (or Act), the EPA is moving forward on the development of the separate e-Manifest User Fee Schedule Regulation. The Act authorizes the EPA to impose on manifest users reasonable service fees that are necessary to pay costs incurred in developing, operating, maintaining and upgrading the system, including costs incurred in collecting and processing data from any paper manifest submitted to the system after the date on which the system enters operation. The Agency plans to issue both a proposed and final rule in setting the appropriate electronic manifest and manifest fees. In July 2016, the EPA published in the Federal Register the User Fee Proposed Rule, which proposed for comment the fee methodology for establishing the electronic manifest and paper service fees. The agency plans in a final rule to establish a program of fees that will be imposed on users of the e-manifest system and announce the user fee schedule for manifest-related activities, including activities associated with the collection and processing of paper manifests submitted to the EPA. The Agency also plans in that final rule to announce (1) The date upon which the EPA will be ready to transmit and receive manifests through the national e-Manifest system and (2) the date upon which the user community must comply with the new e-Manifest regulation.
