The number of environmental laws and regulations has 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 Air Force Engineering and Services Center, began research on the U.S. Environmental Compliance Assessment and Management Program ECAMP. The concept was to combine Federal, Department of Defense DOD, and Air Force environmental regulations, along with existing checklists from the USEPA and private industry, 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 Georgia Supplement was developed to be used in conjunction with the U.S. ECAMP manual, using existing Georgia state environmental legislation and regulations as well as suggested management practices.
