Hazardous Waste Shipment: Best Practices to Prepare for the New e-Manifest System

Live Webinar: Wednesday, March 28, 2018

2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Join us on March 28th to get the most up to date assessment on the e-Manifest requirements that goes into effect on June 30, 2018 and how it will impact your organization.

In 2012 the Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest Establishment Act (e-Manifest Act) directed the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish a hazardous waste e-Manifesting system. Now, after years of developing new e-Manifest regulations and the technology to make the submission of electronic manifests possible, the EPA is set to launch the e-Manifest system on June 30th of this year. The final rule setting forth user fees was issued on January 3rd and is one of the last steps in the implementation of the new e-Manifest system. This recent final rule also added and clarified several e-Manifest regulations.

Because development of the e-Manifest has spanned so many years and is on the verge of becoming a reality for those entities required to use a hazardous waste manifest, it’s important to be up-to-date on understanding how the system works and what your responsibilities will be. Fully understanding the e-Manifest requirements is critical to your organization’s compliance initiatives to avoid EPA fines.

Join us on March 28th with Phil Comella, Partner at Freeborn & Peters, who specializes in hazardous waste management and has been tracking the development of the e-Manifest system. Phil will explain the basics of the system and provide an in-depth discussion on how to best implement the e-Manifest system at your company.

You’ll learn:

  • The regulatory process that was followed for the hazardous waste manifest system
  • Significant dates for the e-Manifest system and how it will affect state regulators
  • Changes from the proposed e-Manifest user fee rule to the final
  • Key provisions of the system and a strategy for implementation
  • How fees associated with the e-Manifest will be applied and their impact
  • How and when users of the e-Manifest system will pay the fees
  • The costs of continuing with a paper system vs. electronic system, and which is the most cost effective
  • The phase-out timing of paper manifests
  • The sanctions for non-payment of fees
