Abstract : In response to the growing number of environmental laws and regulations worldwide, the U.S. Army adopted an environmental compliance program that identifies compliance problems before they are cited as violation by the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). Beginning in 1985, Major Army Commands (MACOMs) were required to conduct comprehensive environmental assessments at all installations on a 4-year cycle. The installations must also conduct a mid-cycle internal assessment, the Army mandated, through Army Regulation 200-1, one unified Army-wide assessment mechanism. The resulting system combines Federal, Department of Defense (DOD), and Army environmental regulations, along with documentation of good management practices and risk- management information, into a series of checklists that show (1) legal requirements and (2) which specific items or operations to review. The Worldwide ECAS manual integrates information from the Overseas Environmental Baseline Guidance Document (OEBGD), published by DOD in October 1992.
