Who Requires What?
Hazardous waste shipments are governed by 2 different agencies, DOT and EPA.
Under the DOT regulation, a 5-part carbon copy paper hazardous waste manifest must accompany most hazardous waste that is shipped off site. The Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest is the shipping document that travels with hazardous waste from the point of generation, through transportation, to the final treatment, storage, and disposal facility (TSDF). Each party in the chain of shipping, including the generator, signs and retains one of the manifest copies, creating a “cradle-to-grave” tracking of the hazardous waste. Identification (ID) numbers are needed by all parties on the manifest.
The final treatment, storage, and disposal facility (TSDF) is required to submit final manifests to EPA to the e-Manifest system. This is done either electronically or, in about 95% of the cases, using a scanned copy of the original manifest, or a combination of a data file and scanned copy.
