RIN: 2050-AG80 (What's this?)

Docket No.: EPA-HQ-RCRA-2001-0032 (What's this?)

Current Phase: Proposal (What's this?)

Abstract:
In February 2014, the EPA promulgated the first e-Manifest regulation to authorize the use of electronic manifests and to codify key provisions of the Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest Establishment Act (or Act). The EPA now is developing the e-Manifest User Fee Schedule Regulation.

The Act authorizes the EPA to impose on e-manifest users reasonable service fees to cover the EPA's costs to develop, operate, maintain and upgrade the electronic manifest system. These include the costs of collecting and processing data from any paper manifest submitted to the system after the date on which the system enters operation. The agency plans is considering appropriate electronic and paper manifest service fees. The EPA is considering a methodology to establish the electronic and paper manifest service fees. In a final rule, the agency plans to establish a program of fees that will be imposed on users of the e-manifest system and announce the user fee schedule for manifest-related activities, including activities associated with the collection and processing of paper manifests submitted to the EPA. In the final rule, the agency also plans to announce (1) the date upon which the EPA will be ready to transmit and receive manifests through the national e-Manifest system and (2) the date upon which the user community must comply with the new e-Manifest regulation.
