Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. U.S. EPA requires Illinois (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). Illinois's rules for hazardous waste manifest preparation and use are the same as the federal rules, and waste handlers 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. Illinois has retained, however, its additional state requirement concerning a generator's distribution of manifest copies.
• Administration and enforcement. IEPA's Division of Land Pollution Control administers and enforces the manifest rules in Illinois.
