Abstract : The number of environmental laws and regulations continues to grow in the United States and throughout the world, making compliance with regulations increasingly difficult. Environmental assessments became a way to evaluate compliance with current environmental regulations. The Air Force has adopted a compliance program that identifies problems before they are cited as violations by regulatory agencies. Beginning in 1984, the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratories (USACERL), in cooperation with the Air Force Engineering and Services Center, began research on the Environmental Compliance Assessment and Management Program (ECAMP). The concept was to combine Federal, Department of Defense (DOD), and Air Force environmental regulations with good management practices and risk management issues into a series of checklists that show legal requirements and which specific items or operations to review. Each assessment protocol lists a point of contact to help assessors review the checklists as effectively as possible. The Environmental Compliance Assessment and Management Program-Federal Republic of Germany ECAMP is based on the "Environmental Final Governing Standards - Germany," published by Headquarters, U.S. Army, Europe (HO USAREUR) ir November 1994.
