Abstract:

In response to the growing number of environmental laws and regulations, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC has adopted an environmental compliance program that identifies compliance problems before they are cited as violations by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency USEPA. The CDC compliance program, developed in 1992, is intended to help the agency maintain compliance with all Federal, state, and local environmental regulations. The goal is to protect human health, safety and the environment. CDC headquarters in Atlanta, GA, along with facilities in several other states, co-developed and implemented a specific environmental assessment and management program tailored to the type and size of CDC facilities and operations. The resulting system combines Federal environmental regulations, along with documentation of good management practices and risk management information, into a series of checklists that show legal requirements and list specific items or operations to review. The Environmental Compliance Assessment Protocol-Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ECAP-CDC incorporates existing checklists from USEPA and private industry. The system has been tested at several Georgia CDC facilities. The manual is updated continually to address new environmental compliance laws and regulations.
