Assisting federal, state, and local agencies as they develop, implement, and refine environmental regulations has long been a core part of our business. We offer a full range of regulatory support services, including gathering and analyzing background data acquired through surveys, literature searches, and other means. We prepare contaminant occurrence analyses, risk assessments, and regulatory and economic impact analyses.
Once regulations are in place, we support their implementation by federal and state authorities in a number of ways. For example, we prepare guidance documents and other supporting materials that explain the best practices to follow in order to promote compliance by the regulated community. We also develop and deliver training courses and hold workshops and webinars on regulatory requirements and how to meet them. And we conceive, create, and distribute public education and outreach materials to explain the purpose of regulations, their costs and benefits, and their progress toward achieving environmental and public health protection goals.
