• Rules. Because of the federal government's special role in matters of foreign policy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does not authorize states to administer federal import and export functions in any section of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous waste regulations. EPA's Region 7 office administers and enforces RCRA hazardous waste management requirements in Iowa because the state does not have EPA authorization to implement its own hazardous waste management program. See the national section EXPORTS AND IMPORTS OF HAZARDOUS WASTE for federal requirements.
Required by both the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the EPA, the manifest is the shipping document that travels with hazardous waste from the point of generation. The EPA requires Iowa (and all states) to use the revised federal form of manifest: the standardized Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest (EPA Form 8700-22). See the national section MANIFESTS for more information.
Iowa has adopted federal requirements for transporters of hazardous waste with additional notification requirements. See the state section HAZARDOUS WASTE TRANSPORTERS for more information.
