Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires Utah (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 Utah should go to the national MANIFESTS section for guidance on how to prepare the manifest form and how to deal with related manifest issues such as manifest discrepancies, exception reports, unmanifested waste reports, and rejected shipments. The state has no additional state requirements in connection with the manifest.
Note: See the state section LISTED WASTES for the waste codes for Utah's two additional hazardous wastes that are not listed by the EPA. (These state-specific additional wastes relate to chemical nerve agents.)
• Administration and enforcement. The Utah Department of Environmental Quality's (DEQ) Division of Waste Management and Radiation Control administers and enforces Utah's manifest regulations.
