Interim Policy on Inspection Report Timeliness and Standardization

This Interim Policy establishes inspection practices and pilots for the appropriate and timely notification of EPA inspection results to facilities and the public, including any observed potential deficiencies or areas of concern during an on-site inspection, and the timely completion and release of inspection reports. It builds on the successful implementation of the Quality Assurance Field Activity Procedures (QAFAPs) and carries out the direction under EPA’s FY2018-FY2022 Strategic Plan to move to a Lean management system, with standard work processes, that can be streamlined and measured.
