Do you have more questions than answers about the industry’s transition over to a new ASTM Phase I ESA protocol? You’re not alone.
On August 15, 2013, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency published a Direct Final Rule which proposes to reference the E 1527-13 standard as compliant with the agency’s All Appropriate Inquiries rule (40 CFR Part 312). The agency’s 30-day public comment period just closed and the ASTM standard moves one step closer to publication.
Right now the #1 question in the industry is: When will ASTM E 1527-13 take effect?
At this webinar, two of the experts closest to the ASTM process will share the latest status of the AAI rule amendment and publication of the new Phase I ESA standard.
There are a number of moving pieces in play right now. Tune into this event to learn the latest on the ASTM front, the hot-button issues raised during the public comment period, what happens to E 1527-05 and more. It is an important time for the industry as it prepares to put a new standard into effect and this event will help keep environmental professionals abreast of the process as it unfolds.
