Two-day Compliance seminar for Federal and California Environmental
May 8-9, 2017
At the Doubletree Club Hotel in Santa Ana, Orange County, California
California is well known for its stringent and "pioneering" approach in its environmental regulations. For example, the State has its own unique law in regulating toxic chemicals through Prop 65. While there is some levels of uncertainty at the federal EPA level given the new administration in Washington DC, there is little evidence to doubt the unwavering resolve of California EPA to enforce environmental laws and regulations. Many of California’s environmental programs are more stringent than EPA’s and have been that way for many years.
There have been over 26,000 inspections done by California’s various environmental agencies resulting in over $130 million in penalties and settlements in a recent year. A large home improvement big box store paid $18.1 million in fines and settlement over illegal management and disposal of hazardous wastes. The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) conducted 17 dumpster investigations (dumpster dives) at facilities in California that resulted in over $100 million fines.
