Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires Louisiana (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). Louisiana has its own state rules for generators obtaining treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) confirmation and out-of-state shipments. TSDFs that receive a shipment for disposal that is without a proper manifest must follow the state's specified procedure. Waste handlers in Louisiana 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 Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality's (DEQ) Office of Environmental Compliance administers and enforces the hazardous waste manifest rules in Louisiana.
