Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires Kentucky (and all states) to use the revised federal form of manifest: the standardized Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest (EPA Form 8700-22) and its continuation sheet (EPA Form 8700-22A). Kentucky has revised its manifest regulations as a result of the requirement to use the federal form and because EPA also revised various regulations relating to the manifest (e.g., rules concerning manifest discrepancies and rejected shipments). Kentucky's rules for hazardous waste manifest preparation and use are now the same as the federal rules, and waste handlers should go to the national section MANIFESTS for guidance.

Administration and enforcement. DEP's Hazardous Waste Branch administers and enforces Kentucky's rules for manifests.
