See national section for basic information and federal regulations.

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires North Carolina (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). North Carolina has adopted by reference the federal manifest rules. Waste handlers in North Carolina should go to the national section MANIFESTS for guidance on how to prepare the new form and how to deal with related manifest issues such as manifest discrepancies and rejected shipments. In addition, and unlike the federal rules, North Carolina requires the hazardous waste transporter to attempt to reconcile any significant manifest discrepancy.

Administration and enforcement. The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality's (DEQ) Division of Waste Management administers and enforces the rules for manifests in North Carolina.
