The EPA's Statement About Signing Manifests During the COVID-19 Pandemic

EPA has been contacted by handlers of hazardous waste regarding the anticipated need for continued social distancing for regulated parties obtaining "wet" signatures on paper hazardous waste manifests. According to these handlers, they are conducting hazardous waste operations in states and localities with some of the highest rates of COVID-19 cases in the country. Thus, they believe continued social distancing is necessary to protect truck drivers and facility personnel and strongly urge EPA to continue allowance of the COVID-19 signature substitute policy for paper hazardous waste manifests. Therefore, EPA has determined that the approach set forth in the Temporary COVID-19 Manifest Signature Policy, as modified in this statement on manifest signatures, should continue to be available. This statement on manifest signatures is in effect until November 30, 2020. [ more ]
