Abstract : The number of environmental laws and regulations have continued to grow in the United States and worldwide, making compliance with these regulations increasingly difficult. Environmental assessments became a way to determine compliance with current environmental regulations. The U.S. Air Force has adopted an environmental compliance program that identifies compliance problems before they are cited as violations by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). Beginning in 1984, the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratories (USACERL), in cooperation with the U.S. Air Force, began research on the Environmental Compliance Assessment and Management Program (ECAMP). The concept was to combine Code of Federal Regulations (CFRs), Air Force Regulations (AFRs), Air Force Instructions (AFIs), and Department of Defense (DOD) Directives, along with good management practices and risk- management issues, into a series of checklists that show legal requirements and which specific items or operations to review. Each assessment protocol lists a point of contact to help assessors review the checklists as effectively as possible. Since this initial printing, the ECAMP manual has been updated and revised annually. The manual is continually updated to address new environmental compliance laws and regulations.
