Issued by EPA's Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER), the purpose of this document is to provide guidance to support Five-Year Reviews (FYRs) under CERCLA, as amended, where institutional controls (ICs) are included as components of site remedies. FYRs generally are conducted where the chosen remedy leaves waste in place and does not allow for unlimited use and unrestricted exposure(UU/UE) at a site. This guidance supplements OSWER's 2001 Comprehensive Five-Year Review Guidance (FYR Guidance) and provides recommendations for conducting FYRs for the IC component of remedies in a manner similar to the review of engineering or other remedy components.
