The Environmental Protection Agency has finalized its rule authorizing the use of electronic manifests to track hazardous waste shipments under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. Under the rule, the use of electronic manifests is voluntary; however, the EPA has indicated that it will promote their use to the greatest extent possible. Rules have yet to be published regarding the initial fee structure as well as implementation and compliance dates. Those rules are expected to be published later this year.
For more information regarding this rule or any other environmental issue, please contact Phillip Hoover.
