Enforcement in New England

Chemical Industry Audit Project

Conducted in 1997-1998, the Chemical Industry Audit Project was broadly intended to protect human health and the environment by encouraging firms in this sector to conduct compliance and pollution prevention audits of their own operations. Additionally, EPA wanted to increase awareness and use of its Audit Policy and encourage self-disclosures of violations of federal environmental regulations. The project also grew out of EPA and state interest in exploring alternatives to traditional enforcement programs which can secure environmental improvements and regulatory compliance faster and in a less adversarial setting.
