The number of environmental laws and regulations continue to grow in the United States and worldwide, making compliance with regulations increasingly difficult. Environmental assessments became a way to determine compliance with current environmental regulations. The Air Force has adopted a compliance program that identifies 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. The concept was to combine Federal, Department of Defense DOD, and Air Force environmental regulations 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. The Worldwide Environmental Compliance Assessment and Management Program ECAMP is based on the Overseas Environmental Baseline Guidance Document OEBGD, published by the DOD in October 1992. Worldwide ECAMP includes pertinent information from Air Force Regulations, DOD Directives and Instructions, and cited good management practices. The manual is updated continually to address new laws and regulations.
