Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. EPA requires Oregon (and all states) to use the federal form of manifest: the new standardized Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest (EPA Form 8700-22) and its continuation sheet (EPA Form 8700-22A). Waste handlers in Oregon should go to the national section MANIFESTS for guidance on how to prepare the manifest form and how to deal with such related manifest issues as manifest discrepancies and rejected shipments. Oregon's manifest rules incorporate the federal manifest rules.

Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Land Quality Division administers and enforces Oregon's manifest rules.

Note: What makes the manifest requirements "Oregon-specific" is the need to use state-specific hazardous waste codes as well as DEQ's instructions as to whom at DEQ to send exception reports, if required.
