Philip L. Comella, and Catherine McCord, of Heritage-Crystal Clean LLC, will co-present a Bloomberg BNA environmental webinar, on “The EPA’s New E-Manifest: Understanding the Changes to RCRA’s Cradle-to-Grave System”.

We had previously blogged about the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s public hearings on this topic, and about its subsequent request for information about e-manifest systems. For the past 33 years, the hazardous waste manifest has served as the mechanism for implementing the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act’s cradle-to-grave management of hazardous waste. However, the paper manifest system will soon give way to the digital age.

After the EPA’s unsuccessful attempt at promulgating an e-manifest rule in the early 2000’s, Congress enacted the Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest Establishment Act last fall. This law directs the EPA to issue final regulations authorizing the use of electronic manifests and establish an e-manifest information technology system.

The e-manifest webinar will be on November 19, 2013, from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET. Registration through BNA is required for attendance. Please let Phil know if you have and questions on this important topic.
