INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE UNIFORM HAZARDOUS WASTE MANIFEST
(EPA Forms 8700-22 and 8700-22A)
General Information.
Read all instructions before completing this form. This form has been designed for use on a 12-pitch (elite) typewriter; a firm point pen may also be used—press down hard.
New York State regulation requires generators and transporters of hazardous waste and owners or operators of a hazardous waste treatment, storage and disposal facilities to complete a manifest (EPA form 8700-22), and, if necessary, the continuation sheet (EPA form 8700-22A) for both inter- and intrastate transportation of hazardous waste. Omissions, false coding or illegibility is considered a violation. All generators are responsible under New York State and Federal law for the proper identification, labeling, manifesting and ultimate disposal of all hazardous waste they generate. The manifest system is designed to track hazardous waste from the point of generation until its final disposal (cradle to grave). In order to accomplish that goal, it is essential that all items on a manifest be properly completed.
Distribution.
Distribution of each copy of the manifest is indicated on the bottom of the form. Additional copies of the form may be required. For example, the generator must make additional copies of the manifest, as necessary, to be submitted by the generator to the generator state and the disposer state. Extra copies of the manifest will be needed if more than one transporter is used. For exports, the transporter must deliver a copy of the manifest to the U.S. Customs when exporting the waste across U.S. borders and mail a copy to the generator. For imports, the TSD must mail a copy of the manifest to the USEPA. For rejected loads, the final receiving facility (generator or TSD), must make manifest copies to submit to the generator state and the disposer state, as necessary. New York State regulations provide 10 calendar days for a generator and 10 calendar days for a TSDF to distribute manifest copies. The disposer's state is the state in which the designated TSD facility is located. The generator's state is the state in which the installation generating the hazardous waste is located. TSD facility is a treatment, storage or disposal facility.
For submittal to the department, mail manifest related documents to: New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Solid & Hazardous Materials, Manifest Section, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-7252.
Public Reporting Burden.
The following statement must be included with each Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest, either on the form, in the instructions to the form, or accompanying the form:
"Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average: 30 minutes for generators, 10 minutes for transporters, and 25 minutes for owners or operators of treatment, storage, and disposal facilities. This includes time for reviewing instructions, gathering data, completing, reviewing and transmitting the form. Any correspondence regarding the PRA burden statement for the manifest must be sent to the Director of the Collection Strategies Division in EPA's Office of Information Collection at the following address: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (2822T), 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20460.

Examples of State waste codes include New York State "B" codes for PCB waste and the New York State handling code, described under "Item 13 -additional state requirement."
ITEM 13 - ADDITIONAL STATE REQUIREMENT
If the receiving TSD facility is not providing a hazardous waste management method code in Item 19 that reflects the ultimate disposal method for the hazardous waste, the generator must provide a State waste code to designate the ultimate disposal method of the waste using one of the following State codes:
L = Landfill
B = Incineration, heat recovery, burning
T = Chemical, physical, or biological treatment
R = Material recovery of more than 75 percent of the total material.
If the receiving TSD facility uses hazardous waste report management method code for "storage, bulking, and/or transfer off-site - no treatment/recovery, fuel blending, or disposal at this site" in Item 19 of the manifest form, and the generator has failed to provide the ultimate disposal method in Item 13, the ultimate disposal method is deemed landfill (L).
Item 14. Special Handling Instructions and Additional Information.
1. Generators may enter any special handling or shipment-specific information necessary for the proper management or tracking of the materials under the generator's or other handler's business processes, such as waste profile numbers, container codes, bar codes, or response guide numbers. Generators also may use this space to enter additional descriptive information about their shipped materials, such as chemical names, constituent percentages, physical state, or specific gravity of wastes identified with volume units in Item 12.
2. This space may be used to record limited types of federally required information for which there is no specific space provided on the manifest, including any alternate facility designations; the manifest tracking number of the original manifest for rejected wastes and residues that are re-shipped under a second manifest; and the specification of PCB waste descriptions and PCB out-of-service dates required under 40 CFR 761.207.
Item 15. Generator's/Offeror's Certifications
1. The generator must read, sign, and date the waste minimization certification statement. The date is the date of receipt by transporter. In signing the waste minimization certification statement, those generators who have not been exempted by statute or regulation from the duty to make a waste minimization certification under section 3002(b) of RCRA are also certifying that they have complied with the waste minimization requirements. The Generator's Certification also contains the required attestation that the shipment has been properly prepared and is in proper condition for transportation (the shipper's certification). The content of the shipper's certification statement is as follows: "I hereby declare that the contents of this consignment are fully and accurately described above by proper shipping name, and are classified, packaged, marked, and labeled/placarded, and are in all respects in proper condition for transport by highway according to applicable international and national governmental regulations. If export shipment and I am the Primary Exporter, I certify that the contents of this consignment conform to the terms of the attached EPA Acknowledgment of Consent." When a party other than the generator prepares the shipment for transportation, this party may also sign the shipper's certification statement as the offeror of the shipment.
2. Generator or Offeror personnel may preprint the words "On behalf of" in the signature block or may hand write this statement in the signature block prior to signing the generator/offeror certification, to indicate that the individual signs as the employee or agent of the named principal.
Note: All of the above information except the handwritten signature required in Item 15 may be pre-printed.
II. INSTRUCTIONS FOR INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENT BLOCK
Item 16. International Shipments. For export shipments, the primary exporter must check the export box, and enter the point of exit (city and state) from the United States. For import shipments, the importer must check the import box and enter the point of entry (city and state) into the United States. For exports, the transporter must sign and date the manifest to indicate the day the shipment left the United States. Transporters of hazardous waste shipments must deliver a copy of the manifest to the U.S. Customs when exporting the waste across U.S. borders.
III. INSTRUCTIONS FOR TRANSPORTERS
Item 17. Transporter Acknowledgment of Receipt. Enter the name of the person accepting the waste on behalf of the first transporter. That person must acknowledge acceptance of the waste described on the manifest by signing and entering the date of receipt. Only one signature per transportation company is required. Signatures are not required to track the movement of wastes in and our of transfer facilities, unless there is a change of custody between transporter. If applicable, enter the name of the person accepting the waste on behalf of the second transporters. That person must acknowledge acceptance of the waste described on the manifest by signing and entering the date of receipt.
Note: Transporters carrying imports, who are acting as importers, may have responsibilities to enter information in the International Shipments Block. Transporters carrying exports may also have responsibilities to enter information in the International Shipments Block. See above instructions for Item 16.
IV. INSTRUCTIONS FOR OWNERS AND OPERATORS OF TREATMENT, STORAGE, AND DISPOSAL FACILITIES
Item 18. Discrepancy
Item 18a. Discrepancy Indication Space.
1. The authorized representative of the designated (or alternate) facility's owner or operator must note in this space any discrepancies between the waste described on the Manifest and the waste actually received at the facility. Manifest discrepancies are: significant differences (as defined by sections 373-2.5[b][1][i][e] and 373-3.5[b][1][i][e] of this Title) between the quantity or type of hazardous waste designated on the manifest or shipping paper, and the quantity and type of hazardous waste a facility actually receives; rejected wastes, which may be a full or partial shipment of hazardous waste that the facility cannot accept; or container residues, which are residues that exceed the quantity limits for "empty" containers set forth in section 371.1(h)(2) of this Title.
2. For rejected loads and residues (section 373-2.5[b][1][iv], [v] or [vi], or 373-3.5[b][1][iv], [v] or [vi] of this Title), check the appropriate box if the shipment is a rejected load (i.e., rejected by the designated and/or alternate facility and is sent to an alternate facility or returned to the generator) or a regulated residue that cannot be removed from a container. Enter the reason for the rejection or the inability to remove the residue and a description of the waste. Also, reference the manifest tracking number for any additional manifests being used to track the rejected waste or residue shipment on the original manifest. Indicate the original manifest tracking number in Item 14, the Special Handling Block and Additional Information Block of the additional manifests.
3. Owners or operators of facilities located in unauthorized states (i.e., states in which the EPA administers the hazardous waste management program) who cannot resolve significant differences in quantity or type within 15 days of receiving the waste must submit to their Regional Administrator a letter with a copy of the Manifest at issue describing the discrepancy and attempts to reconcile it (40 CFR 264.72[c] and 265.72[c]).
4. Owners or operators of facilities located in authorized states (i.e., those states that have received authorization from the EPA to administer the hazardous waste management program, such as New York State) should contact their state agency for information on where to report discrepancies involving "significant differences" to state officials. For facilities located in New York State, upon discovering a discrepancy, the owner or operator of the facility must attempt to reconcile the discrepancy with the waste generator or transporter (e.g., with telephone conversations). If the discrepancy is not revolved within 15 days after receiving the waste, the owner or operators must immediately submit a letter to the generator state and the disposer state describing the discrepancy and attempts to reconcile it, and a copy of the manifest or shipping paper at issue.
Item 18b. Alternate Facility (or Generator) for Receipt of Full Load Rejections. Enter the name, address, phone number, and EPA Identification Number of the Alternate Facility which the rejecting TSDF has designated, after consulting with the generator, to receive a fully rejected waste shipment. In the event that a fully rejected shipment is being returned to the generator, the rejecting TSDF may enter the generator's site information in this space. This field is not to be used to forward partially rejected loads or residue waste shipments.
Item 18c. Alternate Facility (or Generator) Signature. The authorized representative of the alternate facility (or the generator in the event of a returned shipment) must sign and date this field of the form to acknowledge receipt of the fully rejected wastes or residues identified by the initial TSDF.
Item 19. Hazardous Waste Report Management Method Codes. Enter the most appropriate Hazardous Waste Report Management Method code for each waste listed in Item 9. The Hazardous Waste Report Management Method code is to be entered by the first treatment, storage, or disposal facility (TSDF) that receives the waste and is the code that best describes the way in which the waste is to be managed when received by the TSDF.
Item 20. Designated Facility Owner or Operator Certification of Receipt (Except as Noted in Item 18a). Enter the name of the person receiving the waste on behalf of the owner or operator of the facility. That person must acknowledge receipt or rejection of the waste described on the Manifest by signing and entering the date of receipt or rejection where indicated. Since the facility certification acknowledges receipt of the waste except as noted in the Discrepancy Space in Item 18a, the certification should be signed for both waste receipt and waste rejection, with the rejection being noted and described in the space provided in Item 18a. Fully rejected wastes may be forwarded or returned using Item 18b after consultation with the generator. Enter the name of the person accepting the waste on behalf of the owner or operator of the alternate facility or the original generator in Item 18b. That person must acknowledge receipt or rejection of the waste described on the Manifest by signing and entering the date they received or rejected the waste in Item 18c. Partially rejected wastes and residues must be re-shipped under a new manifest, to be initiated and signed by the rejecting TSDF as offeror of the shipment.
