Hazardous Waste e-Manifest Advisory Board to Meet This Week
This week in Arlington, VA, US EPA’s Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest System Advisory Board will meet to discuss and plan for the implementation of the e-Manifest system.
The meeting will run for 3 days, from January 10–12, according to EPA’s announcement in the Federal Register last month.
Appointed in March 2016, the Hazardous Waste e-Manifest Advisory Board is tasked with advising US EPA on the development of the electronic manifest system, including a fee schedule, system performance, hazmat and hazardous waste regulations, and other considerations. The Board is comprised of experts from State environmental agencies and private industry.
EPA has announced that the e-Manifest meeting “may be webcast” and that information about a webcast (if there is one) will be available on the dedicated e-Manifest webpage at EPA.gov.
EPA’s e-Manifest page also includes a useful FAQ, a list of the e-Manifest Board Members, links to relevant regulatory activities, and more.
Lion News will continue to report on significant developments regarding the development and implementation of, and the eventual transition to, electronic hazardous waste manifests.
Electronic manifests are just one of the big changes on the way for hazardous waste generators in 2017–18. EPA’s Generator Improvements Rule is set to take effect in May 2017 and will have a major impact on the way your site manages hazardous waste.

Material Control Superintendent
Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
The instructor made the class very enjoyable and catered to the needs of our group.
These are the best commercial course references I have seen (10+ years). Great job!
EHS & Facility Engineer
Best course instructor I've ever had. Funny, relatable, engaging; made it interesting and challenged us as the professionals we are.
This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.
Well designed and thorough program. Excellent summary of requirements with references. Inclusion of regulations in hard copy form, as well as full electronic with state pertinent regulations included is a great bonus!
I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
Lion was very extensive. There was a lot of things that were covered that were actually pertaining to what I do and work with. Great Job. I will be coming back in three years!

I was able to present my scenario to the instructor and worked thru the regulations together. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes. Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion!
