Environmental regulation and enforcement has evolved from a barely significant effort undertaken primarily by a few federal agencies into a vast nationwide network of federal and state agencies. EPA Compliance and Enforcement Answer Book provides a comprehensive overview into this complex area.
The book uniquely covers a range of subjects related to the inner workings of the Environmental Protection Agency that only former agency enforcement attorneys can provide. The authors, who have extensive experience with EPA civil and criminal enforcement programs, state regulatory agencies, and the U.S. Department of Justice, provide practical guidance on how to prepare for and navigate government investigations.
EPA Compliance and Enforcement Answer Book provides, in an easy Q&A format, a roadmap to the EPA’s criminal, administrative, and civil judicial enforcement strategies. It describes the EPA’s enforcement priorities, and advises on compliance monitoring programs and possible defenses to regulatory actions.
