We wanted to make you aware of a couple of recent developments in the e-Manifest program.
First, for New York State Generators: effective April 14, 2022 NYS based generators no longer have to submit generator manifest copies to NYS DEC or to the designated TSDF for all non-export shipments. Additionally, NYS based TSDFs are now authorized to submit executed manifest copies to the RCRA Info e-Manifest portal instead of returning the same directly to the generator. Though the TSDFs may still elect to continue to send executed copies to the generator, this further illustrates the importance of having all Hazardous Waste generators subject to the manifest rule register in the RCRA Info e-Manifest system.
Secondly, as outlined in our prior notice, updates to the federal e-Manifest program remain in the Proposed Stage as the request for Public Comment period has recently been extended to August 1, 2022. WTS will continue to monitor this development and advise accordingly.
