As of September 5, 2006, the new standardized manifest form (EPA Form 8700-22) and its continuation sheet (EPA Form 8700-22A) must be used in every state to track hazardous waste shipments. There will be no state variations of the new federal form and states may not require information to be included on the form that is in addition to that required by federal rules. That said, some differences between states may exist with regard to use of the form. For Idaho these differences include:
Idaho does not have any state-specific waste codes.
Idaho does not require copies of manifests to be submitted to it regardless of whether the waste originates or is disposed of in the state. The only exception is when Idaho DEQ is the generator of the waste.
