Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires South 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). Waste handlers in South Carolina 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.

Administration and enforcement. DHEC's Bureau of Land and Waste Management administers and enforces South Carolina's manifest regulations.
