Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires Ohio (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). Ohio'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.

Administration and enforcement. Ohio EPA's Division of Materials and Waste Management administers and enforces the manifest rules in Ohio.
