EPA has announced the user fees for electronic and paper manifests for Fiscal Years (FY) 2020 and 2021 (October 1, 2019, through September 30, 2021). The fees are set based on the manifest usage and processing costs for each manifest type.

Specifically, EPA says that any manifest that originates (signed by the generator) on or after October 1, 2019, will be charged the fiscal years 2020 and 2021 user fee rate when submitted to the e-Manifest system by the receiving facility. Receiving facilities will see their first invoices reflecting the new rates starting in November 2019.

EPA encourages the hazardous waste industry to adopt fully electronic manifesting as soon as possible so that industry members can take maximum advantage of the benefits and cost savings of electronic manifesting. However, the Agency acknowledges that it will take time for industry to fully transition to electronic manifests. EPA supports wide adoption of electronic manifesting by the regulated community as soon as it’s feasible.
