Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires Florida (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). Florida's manifest rules incorporate the federal manifest rules. Hazardous waste handlers in Florida 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.

Administration and enforcement. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection's (DEP) Division of Waste Management administers and enforces the state's manifest rules.
