Tennessee Manifest Requirements

Federal regulations require use of a hazardous waste manifest system to track hazardous waste whenever it is transported. The U.S. Environment Protection Agency (EPA) maintains a Manifest Registry of specific sources authorized to print and distribute the Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest forms. The state of Tennessee does not print blank manifest forms and does not have any state specific waste codes. 

The EPA launched the hazardous waste electronic manifest (e-Manifest) system on June 30, 2018, which currently serves as the federal hazardous waste manifest repository. E-manifest data is publicly available at RCRAInfo Web, with releases of new manifests occurring on a weekly basis.

To use the e-Manifest module in the RCRAInfo Industry Application, individual users will need to register for the system. Please see the EPA website for instructions on how to register for a RCRAInfo account and e-Manifest. If you do not have an EPA ID number for a site located within the state of Tennessee and wish to use the e-manifest system, please submit a completed EPA ID number application to TDEC using the State of Tennessee forms.

Tennessee does not require copies of manifests be submitted to the State, regardless of whether the waste originates or is disposed of in the state. However, the e-Manifest program requires that all hazardous waste receiving facilities submit manifests to the EPA. The state of Tennessee will not accept these manifests and will not forward them to the EPA. After June 30, 2021, EPA will no longer accept mailed hard copy manifests. All future manifest submissions must be made through the e-manifest system.
