Why Should You Attend:
This webinar will explain, in a well-organized and effective manner, the key differences in regulations that any person responsible for environmental compliance in California needs to know.
As most national and international corporation headquarters are located outside of California, there often is a gap in understanding this state’s unique, complicated, and heavily-enforced environmental regulations. This is due in part to the fact that most other states consistently follow U.S. EPA environmental regulations, whereas many California requirements predate federal regulations, or modify them to be more stringent. In addition, the state has unique regulatory programs that have no federal or other state counterpart.
In view of onerous enforcement and strict liability (“lack of knowledge is no defense”), it is essential to understand the differences and how to comply to avoid serious problems. There are numerous examples of major corporations that have incurred substantial penalties because of the lack of information in this regard.
The webinar’s instructor has over 20 years of experience in assisting clients comply with California’s tough environmental requirements, as well as defending clients in administrative, civil, and criminal cases in all of these topics. This webinar is based on the popular “Environmental Crash Course” attended by thousands of California business representatives. It covers Community Right-to-Know, air pollution regulation of stationary sources and consumer products, Proposition 65, and hazardous and universal waste.
Areas Covered in the Webinar:
The webinar will include well-organized PowerPoint explanations of regulatory requirements, as well as tables comparing federal and state requirements. The CD has hyperlinks to regulations covered in the program.
