Inaugural Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest System Advisory Board Meeting – “System Launch: Day 1 E-Manifest” - January 10-12, 2017

January 10-12, 2017
9:00 AM -5:00 PM ET
Held at the Crystal City Marriott at Reagan National Airport
Arlington (Crystal City), Virginia 22202

On January 10-12, 2017, EPA held its first public meeting of the Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest System (e-Manifest) Advisory Board. The meeting occurred in Arlington, Virginia at the Crystal City Marriott. The purpose of the meeting,  entitled “System Launch: Day 1 e-Manifest,” was to address critical policy and system development issues that need resolution prior to launching the e-Manifest system. Specifically, the Advisory Board provided recommendations to EPA on setting and revising user fees for users of the e-Manifest system. The Advisory Board also advised EPA on system development matters, such as critical functionality needed on the first day of e-Manifest’s implementation and mechanisms to encourage early adoption of e-Manifest once it becomes available to users. The final meeting minutes will be completed and made publically available within 90 days after the close of the meeting.

E-Manifest is a national system for electronically tracking hazardous waste shipments that will improve access to higher quality and more timely shipment data and significantly reduce the burden associated with the current paper system.
