Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. U.S. Department of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires Michigan (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). Hazardous waste handlers should go to the national MANIFESTS section for guidance on how to prepare the manifest form and how to deal with related manifest issues such as manifest discrepancies and rejected shipments. Michigan has its own rules concerning distribution of manifest copies by treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs). A shipping document (not necessarily the hazardous waste manifest) must be used in Michigan for transporting liquid industrial by-product for which the state has requirements concerning its use and distribution of copies.
