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.
