Regional Tribal Operations Committee

The Environmental Protection Agency established the Tribal Operations Committee (TOC) in 1994 to assist EPA with the establishment of a national co-regulatory partnership. The intent of the TOC was to implement the 1984 Indian Policy by providing a forum for enhancing tribal environmental protection. The Region 6 Regional Tribal Operations Committee (RTOC) was subsequently established to serve as a liaison between the TOC, the Tribes, and Region 6 on national policy issues and to articulate tribal concerns to the Senior Managers and staff regarding regional issues.
