Ohio EPA office helps businesses comply with regulation
The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has created an office to help businesses comply with regulations and identify pollution prevention opportunities that can save money, increase efficiency and benefit the environment.
The Office of Compliance Assistance and Pollution Prevention came from EPA’s recognition that most businesses do not have environmental experts on staff to help complete paperwork and are unable to afford the services of an environmental consultant. Additionally they have limited time to search for resources and tools available to them.The office is intended to be a one-stop location for answers and information about environmental regulations, compliance concerns and pollution prevention, according to an EPA brochure.
The office will provide a toll-free telephone hotline, on-site compliance assessments, on-site pollution prevention assessments, a website, assistance with permits, environmental workshops and a quarterly newsletter.
The office is non-regulatory and the information it discusses is not shared with agency inspection or enforcement staff. More information about the office is available at www.epa.ohio.gov/ocapp or by calling its hotline at 1-800-329-7518.
