In April, US EPA held its fourth e-Manifest Advisory Board meeting. After the meeting, the Advisory Board delivered its final recommendations to increase use of electronic hazardous waste manifests among generators and transporters.
The Advisory Board focused on ways to make e-Manifests more convenient for generators and transporters, namely by streamlining the electronic signature requirements.
In a document released in October 2020, EPA responds to each of the Advisory Board’s recommendations to increase use of e-Manifests.

E-Manifest Deadlines for TSDFs and Generators
As Lion News
reported in March this year, adoption of e-Manifests by hazardous waste facilities has been slow-going so far. We explored the various hang-ups and complexities that stop generators from adopting e-manifests in the blog Who’s Using Electronic Manifests?
Soon, all covered facilities will be required to submit hazardous waste manifests electronically.
Receiving facilities must adopt e-Manifests by June 30, 2021.
Generators must adopt e-Manifests by June 30, 2023.
