Compliance Checklist

Organization(s) Narragansett Bay Commission
Project Description EPA Regional I-New England has been very proactive with respect to promoting various voluntary environmental performance programs, such as Performance Track, Metal Finishing 2000, Project XL and the National Strategic Goals Program (SGP). The NBC has likewise participated in these programs with a major focus on the metal finishing industry. Regulatory inspections conducted by EPA and RI DEM, however, indicates that some of the companies that could be recognized by these programs as "good environmental performers" are being found to be in non-compliance with some basic regulatory requirements. Some of the more frequently identified discrepancies include - lack of an updated hazardous waste contingency plan, failure to conduct required hazardous waste storage area inspections, and failure to maintain proper employee training records. To help these companies reach their full environmental performance potential and to help get them involved with these various "beyond compliance" programs, EPA Region I-New England and NBC are in the process of developing an environmental compliance status survey form. This form will be distributed among the metal finishing community to help identify the most common and problematic compliance issues. The results of this survey will help EPA Region I-New England and NBC better focus future educational and technical assistance efforts on identified problematic issues.
