EPA Personnel Access and Security System (EPASS)

On March 1, EPA began issuance of Personal Identity Verification (PIV) badges for all Federal employees and certain non-Federal personnel. Transition to the use of this badge is required government-wide under Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12.

The goal is to enhance safety, security, and efficiency by more effectively controlling access to Federal space and information. The PIV program will create a standard, trusted identity badge that will eventually be accepted at every Executive Branch Federal agency and department. EPA’s implementation of the PIV badge is called EPASS (EPA Personnel Access and Security System). Office of Management and Budget issued Memorandum 07-06, January 12, 2007, requires each Federal agency to post to its public website a quarterly report on the number of PIV badges issued.
