User Fees for the Electronic Hazardous Waste Manifest System and Amendments to Manifest Regulations (Final)
Jan. 3, 2018
This regulation establishes the methodology the EPA will use to determine and revise the user fees applicable to the electronic and paper manifests to be submitted to the national electronic manifest system (e-Manifest system) being developed under the Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest Establishment Act. EPA expects the system to be operational and available to users 30 June 2018. EPA will begin accepting manifest submissions and collecting the corresponding submission fees on this date. This action also announces final decisions and regulations relating to several non-fee related matters that were included in the proposed rule. This includes modifying the existing regulations to: allow changes to the transporters designated on a manifest while the shipment is en route; describe how data corrections may be made to existing manifest records in the system; and amend the previous e-Manifest regulation (the One Year Rule) to allow the use, in certain instances, of a mixed paper and electronic manifest to track a hazardous waste shipment. This final rule is effective on 30 June 2018.
