 USWAG/AGA Comments on EPA Proposed Manifest Reform Rule (Oct. 4, 2001) 

On October 4, 2001 Utility Solid Waste Activities Group (USWAG) submitted comments comments to EPA in response to EPA’s Proposed Rulemaking to modify the Hazardous Waste Manifest System. USWAG commended EPA for proposing regulations that could provide significant regulatory relief to many members of the regulated community.  USWAG urged EPA to work with DOT to ensure that the interrelated hazardous waste manifest and hazardous material shipping  paper requirements function harmoniously with each other.  USWAG also recommended a two-year delayed compliance date for using the revised Uniform Manifest and meeting those requirements directly related to using the form.  USWAG supported EPA's efforts to create an electronic manifest filing and recordkeeping system, but cautioned that a successful rule must be simple and cost-effective.
