Next Generation Compliance: Strategic Plan 2014-2017

The Next Generation Compliance Strategic Plan charts our path forward in the coming years.  The Plan was developed by a workgroup from OECA Headquarters office and the regional offices, focusing on what we will do to implement Next Generation Compliance while reinforcing collaboration across EPA and with our state and tribal partners.

The Next Generation Compliance Strategic Plan is organized around the five interconnected components:

  • More Effective Regulations and Permits
  • Advanced Monitoring
  • Electronic Reporting
  • Expanded Transparency, and
  • Innovative Enforcement
