Plain English Guide to Major EPA Laws

The field of regulatory compliance law is dynamic.  It is continually evolving and expanding exponentially.  The first major obstacle compliance officers must overcome is that of demystifying the sheer mass of confusion with EHS compliance legislation at the federal, state, county and local jurisdictions of government.  Yet, it’s the responsibility of every company to satisfy all laws that require compliance.  So there’s no choice but to understand and implement every mandate.  Once a firm foundation of legislative expertise is established, the compliance officer must then crystallize his thinking just as to what compliance activity must be generated. 

Vanguard’s services to its nationwide clientele carry a two-fold purpose:
