Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. U.S. EPA requires Alabama (and all states) to use the federal form of manifest: the standardized Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest (EPA Form 8700-22) and its continuation sheet (EPA Form 8700-22A). Waste handlers in Alabama should go to the national section MANIFESTS for guidance on how to prepare the manifest form and how to deal with related manifest issues such as manifest discrepancies and rejected shipments. Alabama's manifest rules incorporate the federal manifest rules and, in addition, set forth state requirements in connection with manifest copies and exception reports.
• Administration and enforcement. ADEM's Hazardous Waste Program administers and enforces the state's manifest requirements.
