Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. EPA requires Arizona (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). Arizona has adopted by reference the federal manifest rules. Waste handlers in Arizona 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. Arizona has retained its additional state requirements for generators, transporters, and TSDFs regarding improperly completed forms, exception reports, and submission of manifest copies to ADEQ.

For information on manifesting special wastes, see the state section SOLID WASTE.
