Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. The 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'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.
• Administration and enforcement. The Department for Environmental Protection's (DEP) Division of Waste Management administers and enforces Kentucky's rules for manifests.
