Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. U.S. EPA requires Georgia (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 Georgia 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. Georgia has adopted by reference the revised federal manifest regulations.
• Administration and enforcement. DNR's Land Protection Branch administers and enforces the manifest requirements in Georgia.
