The Environmental Protection Agency’s enforcement office endeavors to strike an appropriate balance between effectively policing the regulated universe and efficiently using its limited resources. The EPA’s enforcement budget has undergone fairly significant reductions over the last three years. To continue an effective enforcement presence in the wake of budget reductions, the agency is looking for more efficient ways to conduct its enforcement activities. The current administration’s approach is called Next Generation Compliance.

The webinar will discuss the EPA’s Next Generation approach, highlighting TSCA reform as one potential area that may see heightened enforcement through Next Generation, as well as alternative enforcement options that may serve as better approaches to foster environmental compliance.

Educational Objectives:
•Explain the EPA’s traditional enforcement process
•Examine the EPA’s new enforcement initiative
•Explore areas where regulated communities may see heightened enforcement through the Next Generation Strategy
