Next Generation Compliance
Just as the Internet has transformed the way we communicate and access information, advances in information and emissions monitoring technology are setting the stage for detection, processing and communication capabilities that can revolutionize environmental protection. We are moving toward a world in which EPA, states, citizens, and industry will have real-time electronic information regarding environmental conditions, emissions and compliance. EPA is developing and implementing a new paradigm -- "Next Generation Compliance" -- that uses advances in both emissions monitoring and information technology, along with better designed rules, to improve environmental protection. This session will discuss the five components of Next Generation Compliance, emphasizing the electronic reporting and transparency components.
