Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires West Virginia (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). West Virginia's manifest rules incorporate the federal manifest rules. Hazardous waste handlers in West Virginia 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. DEP's Division of Water and Waste Management administers and enforces the state's manifest rules.
