Plan for and comply with changing environmental regulations

Register for CH2M’s webinar Thursday, December 14, 2017 to learn about new legislative changes to environmental regulations by the current U.S. administration.

In its first year, the current U.S. administration has made significant legislative changes that affect the nation’s environmental regulations. In unprecedented deregulation efforts, 14 former-administration rules have been appealed under Congressional Review Act, and 860 prospective rules that federal agencies planned to work on this year have been eliminated or delayed.

To learn about new legislative changes to environmental regulations by the current U.S. administration, register for CH2M’s free webinar Thursday December 14, 2017 at 11:00 am Central Time.

This webinar focuses on the many environmental rules and regulation that have been repealed, vacated or stayed in 2017, and will address actions the regulated community can take to navigate and cost-effectively comply with this changing regulatory climate especially in light of EPA’s newly released FY 2018-2019 Agency Priority Goals.

In addition, changes and highlights to the Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule, which became effective in 2017 will be discussed. Throughout all of these regulatory changes and reduced funding to environmental agencies, states continue to have environmental mandates through existing and new rules. This year, eight states have adopted the federal Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule, some through direct rulemaking. This webinar will provide insights on additional developments anticipated by the states with respect to this rule.

Webinar speakers include CH2M’s Environmental Auditing and Compliance lead, Rachel Carlson and Senior Environmental Compliance Specialist, Kim Watkins. Combined, they have nearly 50 years of experience in EHS compliance, strategic planning and permitting.

Agenda topics:

  • Overview of current regulatory changes (repealed, stayed, and vacated rules).
  • Other actions affecting environmental regulatory landscape.
  • Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule (update on states’ status).
  • Draft FY 2018-2022 EPA Strategic Plan.
