Inaugural e-Manifest Advisory Board Established
To comply with the Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest Establishment Act, EPA is required to establish a nine-member advisory board. The board’s responsibility is to provide independent advice and recommendations to the EPA administrator on the e-manifest system’s activities, function, policies, and regulations. The EPA administrator or designee will serve as the board chair; the remaining eight positions were recently appointed as follows:
- Joshua Burman, Minnesota Pollution Control Agency;
- Michael Hurley, Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection;
- John Ridgway, Washington State Department of Ecology;
- Thomas Baker, Veolia North America;
- Cynthia Walczak, MPS Group;
- Justin Wilson, Wal-Mart Stores Inc.;
- Raymond Lewis, Wastebits; and
- Raj Paul, Lochbridge.
The first three positions above represent state regulators, the next three represent the regulated community, and the last two represent the information technology sector. This inaugural e-manifest advisory board will serve for a period of three years, from February 2016 through February 2019. More information can be found at EPA’s hazardous waste electronic manifest website.
