How to Participate: Testing the Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest System System (e-Manifest)

Watch the System Demo

EPA is seeking participants to provide user-experience feedback on the an early release of the Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest System (e-Manifest). Once finished, the e-manifest system will be used to electronically track shipments of hazardous waste.

EPA's early release aims to simulate the future system's user experience for hazardous waste generators and treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs). The functional mock-ups in this early release do not yet interface with e-manifest database, but instead contain static data. Users of the mock-ups can provide feedback on creating a new manifest and interacting with an "In Progress" manifest as a generator or TSDF.

To participate, users must first set up a test account on EPA's Central Data Exchange (CDX), before testing the user interface inside of the RCRAInfo Industry Application test environment, and providing feedback.

Accessing the Test Environment

In order to access the test environment, all users will be required to set up a test account at RCRAInfo. If you are interested in testing services, please visit our GitHub page.Exit

Steps in the user registration process:

  1. Visit RCRAInfo
  2. Click the “Register” link
  3. Click the "Continue to Industry User Registration" button
  4. Fill out Title and Name and click the "Next" button
  5. Create your username, password, and password retrieval questions
  6. Review and agree to the Terms and Conditions, and click the "Next" button
  7. Fill out the information for your Organization (not necessarily your site), Job title, phone and email address
  8. Click the "Send Verification Code via Email" button
  9. After entering the verification code from your email click the "Register" button and you will be taken to the My Sites page to register your handler(s)

Steps in the handler registration process:

Please register to use one of our test sites:

  • VAD000532119, "TEST TSDF OF VA", Virginia 22202 - (Generator and TSDF, only test site that can be used for testing web services (at this time))
  • VA988177803, "HEATING AND OIL", Virginia 22033- (Generator Only)
  1. On the My Sites page click on the “Add Existing Site” button and search for your EPA ID number in the Site ID box or a test site and then select that facility. (For example; VA000532119)
  2. Request a role for the site. The 'Site Manager' Role will allow you to test both signing manifests and the e-Manifest web services.
  3. After you submit your request, the request will go to your state administrator. Please understand this is not an instant access process and the state will need to manually activate your request during normal business hours. EPA is continuing to work on the concept of a Site Manager which will allow users to manage their own users
  4. Once you have completed this registration you may use either CDX or RCRAInfo to log on to the application

Illustrations of this process can be found in the How to Register for e-Manifest file on the project's GitHub site Exit.
