Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires Colorado (and all states) to use the federal form of manifest: the new standardized Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest (EPA Form 8700-22) and its continuation sheet (EPA Form 8700-22A). Waste handlers in Colorado should go to the national section MANIFESTS for guidance on how to prepare the manifest and how to deal with related manifest issues such as manifest discrepancies and rejected shipments.

Administration and enforcement. CDPHE's Hazardous Materials and Waste Management Division administers and enforces the hazardous waste manifest requirements in Colorado.
