Legal and Other Requirements

ISO 14001
The requirements identified on this page are derived from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001 standard for environmental management systems. Additional information on this standard can be obtained from their Website at www.iso.org/iso/home.htm Exit EPA Click for Disclaimer

An organization is required to identify and have access to all applicable legal requirements (i.e., laws) and other requirements with which it chooses to comply (i.e., voluntary standards) related to its environmental aspects (i.e., interactions with the environment). These requirements must be taken into account when the organization establishes and maintains its EMS, particularly when it sets the objectives and targets that will determine the level of environmental performance it wishes to achieve.

Region 7 has developed a procedure for determining which legal and other requirements apply to the activities conducted within the scope of our EMS, and has complied a list of these requirements. If you have questions about these requirements, including how they apply to the Region's activities, please contact the Region 7 Office of Public Affairs.
