Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. U.S. EPA requires Montana (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). Montana's rules for hazardous waste manifest preparation and use must now be 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. Montana's manifest rules incorporate the federal manifest rules and, in addition, set forth state requirements in connection with manifests used to transport hazardous waste shipments to a transfer facility.

Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Waste and Underground Tank Management Bureau administers and enforces Montana's manifest regulations.
