Abstract:

This report is one in a series that discusses the DoD overseas environmental program at DoD facilities in Europe. The Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service provides international hazardous waste removal services for DoD components overseas. The overall evaluation objective was to determine the status of DoD environmental program requirements at overseas military facilities. Specifically, we assessed U.S. military compliance with governing environmental standards in foreign countries. Additionally, we assessed whether the hazardous material and hazardous waste programs met regulatory requirements and command needs in Europe. We also reviewed the management control program as it related to DoD environmental requirements and the management of hazardous material and hazardous waste in Europe. This report discusses compliance with governing standards in Europe. Inspector General, DoD, Report No. 99- 251, The Army Environmental Program in Germany, September 15, 1999, discusses the status of environmental requirements and compliance with governing standards in Germany. Inspector General, DoD, Report No. D-2000-157, DoD Hazardous Waste Management and Removal Services in the U.S. European Command, June 28, 2000, discusses meeting command needs for hazardous material and hazardous waste in Europe.
