ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF THE USEPA’S PROPOSED MODIFICATIONS TO THE RCRA HAZARDOUS WASTE MANIFEST SYSTEM
The purpose of this Economic Background Document is to estimate the potential administrative burden reduction and net cost savings to waste handlers and to States, associated with the proposed major modifications to the RCRA manifest system, by comparing estimates of national average annual, manifesting burden under the current RCRA manifest system (i.e. "baseline" case), to after hypothetical implementation of manifest system modifications.

EPA's Waste Section: Fact Sheet: Hazardous Waste Manifest System Streamlined
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is improving and modernizing the hazardous waste tracking system by standardizing the Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest form. Standardizing the form streamlines the waste handling process, helps interstate commerce, and reduces regulatory paperwork. A streamlined process will save waste handlers and regulators time and money, while guaranteeing the continued, safe management of hazardous waste.

PDF Version of the Complete Draft White Paper, EPA "Beyond RCRA":
This paper is intended to provoke discussion and facilitate a public dialogue to explore possible directions for the mid- to long-term future of the RCRA program. Even as the ideas presented in this paper remain open to honest reflection, the desired dialogue has already begun. Based on comments received on an earlier draft of the paper, EPA, with its co-regulators in the states and tribal governments, has already identified a number of short-term opportunities to explore in more detail some of the ideas and issues raised here.

The Hazardous Waste Manifest System
The Hazardous Waste Manifest System is a set of forms, reports, and procedures designed to seamlessly track hazardous waste from the time it leaves the generator facility where it was produced, until it reaches the off-site waste management facility that will store, treat, or dispose of the hazardous waste.

US Army Corps of Engineers: EPA Proposes Modification of the Hazardous Waste Manifest System
Look here to see how the EPA plans to modify the hazardous waste manifest system. The new manifest would eliminate all of the currently optional fields with the exception of the waste code and handling code blocks. So there would no longer be blocks on the new manifest form for the state manifest document number, the state generator's ID number, the state transporter's ID number, the transporter's phone number, the state facility's ID number, or the facility's phone number.
