Environmental State Differences: Audit Edition: 50 States and Puerto Rico

Categories: , Tags: ,


The unique State Differences guide is presented in two parts:
The Environmental State Differences Summaries identify all the important and often complex environmental laws and regulations that are different from similar federal rules with which facilities in each state must comply. These detailed summaries make it feasible to identify the full range of  environmental compliance audit challenges facing a facility.
The corresponding Environmental State Differences Checklists are written to relate directly to their federal environmental audit checklist counterparts. This ensures minimum misinterpretation across federal and state environmental laws and regulations.  Also included in this guide are the state environmental health and safety regulations that have no similar federal requirements.
Each state difference is classified in terms of how it can best be used for ongoing compliance management and support of auditing, checking, and corrective action efforts.
The Environmental State Differences Summaries and Checklists guides are used by attorneys, senior environmental health and safety professionals, consultants, facility compliance personnel and government agencies.
