Overview (Program Summary)
This webinar will provide in-house counsel with an overview of the EPA Audit Policy and similar state self-audit programs, which your company can use to enhance compliance with federal and state environmental programs (e.g., Clean Air Act, RCRA/waste requirements, Clean Water Act EPCRA/TRI, etc.) and avoid significant penalties for non-compliance. These programs incentivize self-assessment followed by prompt disclosure and correction of noncompliance in exchange for civil penalty relief. The panelists will cover practical tips on the pros and cons of using these programs, common pitfalls, and best practices.
