Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires Wisconsin (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). Wisconsin’s rules for hazardous waste manifest preparation mirror the federal rules, and waste handlers should go to the national MANIFESTS section for guidance. In addition, Wisconsin has its own state requirements concerning distribution of manifest copies by hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs). Wisconsin very small quantity generators (VSQGs) that choose to use a manifest must comply with various state provisions.
