EPA Announces New e-Manifest Fees


AUGUST 28, 2019

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced that e-Manifest submission fees are going up substantially beginning Oct. 1.

The Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest Establishment Act that authorized the EPA to implement the national system also required that the costs of developing and operating e-Manifests be recovered from user fees.

In its 2018 user fee final rule, the EPA established a methodology by which the agency would set fees every two fiscal years. For Fiscal Year 2020/2021, the user fees are changing due to various factors, including changes in projected manifest usage rates as well as program costs during this period.

The following user fees will be effective from Oct. 1 through Sept. 30, 2021.

FY 2020/2021 e-Manifest Fees

  • $8 per manifest (previously $5): Electronic manifest, both fully electric and hybrid
  • $14 per manifest (previously $6.50): Data and image upload
  • $20 per manifest (previously $10): Scanned image upload
  • $25 per manifest (previously $15): Mailed-in paper manifest
