The mission of EPA's Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA) is to improve the environment and protect human health by ensuring compliance with environmental laws and regulations, preventing pollution and promoting environmental stewardship. An effective environmental protection system requires a strong and vigorous enforcement program. Using an appropriate combination of enforcement and compliance assistance, we and our partners prevent and reduce pollution, thereby protecting human health and the environment.
Report a Suspected Environmental Violation
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) provides that any person has a right to obtain access to Federal agency records, except to the extent that such records are protected from public disclosure by one of nine exemptions. The Privacy Act (PA) provides access to one of ten nondisclosure documents except for those protected by the exemptions. The PA protects from disclosure all personal identifiable records in the Government’s possession, with certain exceptions established by statute.
Anyone can file a FOIA request. Any citizen or lawfully-admitted alien can file a PA request. Either type of request must be made in writing or submitted in an electronic format. The EPA OIG does not accept requests by phone.
Once an agency receives a FOIA request, the agency has 20 working days to make a decision on the request.
1. FOIAonline (Preferred / Fastest Method)
FOIAonline allows you to electronically submit FOIA requests, modify requests, communicate with the EPA about the
status of a request, search previously submitted requests, view responsive documents that are cleared for
release, access a dashboard with information about the status of a request, and file an appeal.
Access FOIAonline at http://foiaonline.regulations.gov
