Abstract : In response to the growing number of environmental laws and regulations worldwide, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has adopted an environmental compliance program that identifies compliance problems before they are cited as violations by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). In 1992, the CDC developed a program to maintain compliance with all Federal, state, and local environmental regulations. The goal is to protect human health/ safety and the environment. The CDC headquarters in Atlanta, GA with facilities in several other states, developed and implemented a specific environmental assessment and management program tailored to the type and size of their facilities and operations. The resulting system combines Federal environmental regulations, along with good management practices and risk management information, into a series of checklists that show legal requirements and which specific items or operations to review. The Environmental Compliance Assessment Protocol Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (ECAP-CDC) incorporates existing checklists from USEPA and private industry. The manual is updated continually to address new environmental compliance laws and regulations.
