Part One: EPA Information Request Letters - Practical Tips and Guidance for Responding in Today's Enforcement Climate
Most environmental statutes provide EPA with broad information gathering authority to examine a company's compliance with applicable environmental laws or waste-related practices. One of the ways in which EPA exercises this authority is via the Information Request letter, which may be a prelude to formal enforcement or administrative action.
Our panel will discuss the scope of EPA's information gathering authority, as well as the "dos" and "don'ts" of responding to EPA Information Request letters. They will each begin with a brief review of specific information gathering provisions available to EPA under CERCLA, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and RCRA in addition to participating in an interactive discussion of common concerns and issues to be addressed under all of these provisions. Ample time will be reserved for audience questions.
Our speakers for this program are:
- Adam Cohen, Partner, DGS
- Randy Dann, Partner, DGS
- Mave Gasaway, Associate, DGS
This seminar will be moderated by DGS Partner, John Jacus.
