The EPA's Hazardous Waste e-Manifest Program


At the end of June 2018, the EPA launched its new electronic manifesting system. This e-Manifest system is meant to modernize the country’s cradle-to-grave hazardous waste tracking process. The implementation of e-Manifest applies to hazardous wastes controlled by RCRA Subtitle C, and state-designated hazardous wastes. Generators, transporters, and TSD facilities handling hazardous wastes are all impacted by the implementation of e-Manifest.

View this live Q&A to get your most pressing questions answered, including:

  • How does e-Manifest apply to wastes that are required to be manifested in one state but not required in another state?
  • Will the e-Manifest system collect manifests for wastes that are not regulated as hazardous by the EPA, but that are regulated as hazardous by a state?
  • How will generators, who are not registered in e-Manifest, receive a copy of the completed manifest?
  • Is there a change to the discrepancy reporting requirements under the e-Manifest system?
  • Can a transporter, broker, or receiving facility prepare and sign manifests ‘on behalf of’ the generator?
  • If I mail or upload a paper manifest to EPA, what is considered the “legal” record of shipment once the paper manifest becomes an electronic manifest? Do I need to retain my paper copy, or can I rely on the system to keep the electronic record?
