Audit Policy Self-Disclosure & Regional Contacts

Reporting a Self-Disclosure under the Audit Policy

Once a violation has been discovered, a company has 21 days from the time of that discovery to disclose in writing the violation to EPA. The initial disclosure should identify the means of discovery, type of violation, and facility location. The Agency will send follow-up communications to a company after receiving a self-disclosure pursuant to EPA's Audit Policy. The letter provides companies with clear guidance on the kind of information needed by EPA to better understand the potential violations and determine whether a company's disclosure meets the conditions of the Audit Policy. Here is an example of the EPA's Follow-up Letter (PDF) (105K, 5 pp, About pdf).

Contacts for Making Disclosures

Disclosures should be faxed or mailed to the EPA Region in which the entity or facility is located. For potential criminal violations or civil violations in multiple EPA Regions, the disclosure should be made to EPA Headquarters.
