Frequent Questions

Why is the Department of Transportation's (DOT's) authority being used to implement the Modification of the Hazardous Waste Manifest System Rule?

EPA is required by statute to coordinate with DOT on transportation requirements, and to maintain consistency with DOT's hazardous materials statutes and regulations. DOT indicated that it supports the changes to the manifest contained in this rule, as it will cause the manifest to be more in line with DOT statutes that promote uniformity in the regulation of hazardous materials transportation, including the use and content of shipping papers such as the manifest.
