e-Manifest System Mock-Up Available for Testing

EPA is seeking participants to provide user-experience feedback on an early release of the hazardous waste electronic manifest system (e-manifest). This early release will simulate the future system’s user interface for hazardous waste generators and TSD facilities. The functional mock-ups in this early release will not interface with the e-manifest database, but instead will contain static data. Users of the mock-ups can provide feedback on creating a new manifest and interacting with an “in progress” e-manifest as a generator or TSD facility.

To participate, users must first set up a test account on EPA’s Central Data Exchange (CDX). After registering in CDX, participants can enter the test environment and user interface. Instructions for testing the e-manifest user interface and for providing feedback to the agency are provided on EPA’s e-manifest testing site. The agency is specifically looking for feedback on the system’s usability and on the business rules included in the mock-up screens.
