Compliance Coordination and Assistance Unit

The Compliance Coordination and Assistance Unit provides technical and regulatory assistance in unusual or time-critical projects that are not otherwise overseen by other Division programs. Compliance assistance aids the regulated community, local governments, and the public in understanding the importance of the requirements and the advantages to all by promoting lower operating costs, lower contamination clean-up costs, lower penalties, and increased community acceptance. It also fosters communication between industry and regulators and provides a means for establishing common-sense approaches to regulation. This is accomplished by providing technical workshops, developing fact sheets and other educational materials, and providing technical assistance to the regulated community and the general public through oral and written communications.
