Here are links to compliance assistance information for the five FY19 focus areas for EPA's federal facilities enforcement and compliance assurance program. The links include EPA websites, FedCenter links, and sector-specific compliance assistance centers funded by EPA grants. Many of the EPA sites have links to upcoming training, including webinars, so it is worthwhile to check them often. Several also have information on new regulatory developments with helpful responses to frequently-asked questions. We hope these will help you ensure your facilities comply with all applicable environmental requirements.
