Abstract:

In response to the growing number of environmental laws and regulations worldwide, 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 Air Force Engineering and Services Center, began research on the Environmental Compliance Assessment and Management Program ECAMP. ECAMP integrates Federal regulations, Department of Defense DoD directives and instructions including the Overseas Environmental Baseline Guidance Document, Air Force regulations, and documentation of good management practices and risk- management issues into a series of checklists that list legal requirements and specify items or operations to review. Each assessment protocol lists a point of contact to help assessors review the checklists as effectively as possible. The ECAMP German Supplement incorporates German laws and regulations, and was developed for use in conjunction with the Worldwide ECAMP manual. This manual was tested at Rhein-Main and Spangdahlem Air Force Bases, and is updated continually to address changes in German laws and regulations.
