On March 4, 2005, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published new regulations that significantly changed the hazardous waste manifest system. Central to the rule change was a new hazardous waste manifest form, a standardized form that is to be used nation-wide in all states and territories, replacing approximately 24 state-specific variations of the old form. The rule change allowed an 18-month transition period, which ended on September 4, 2006. Since September 5, 2006, only the new standardized manifest form and the new manifest completion instructions are valid for use.
Are your waste handlers trained on how to complete the new manifest?
This one-hour course summarizes the new hazardous waste manifest rule, shows you where you can obtain the new standardized manifest, and provides instructions for completion of the new manifests. This course is not intended to provide instructions on other aspects of hazardous waste management regulations.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
