Environmental compliance means conforming to the standards and limits set in environmental laws and regulations. In recent years, states and local governments have increasingly passed environmental protection laws. Traditionally, large industrial plants are subject to many environmental requirements, however, many small and medium size businesses are also subject to environmental laws and regulations. The types of laws and regulations your business may need to comply with depend on many factors like; location, size of your business, and the type of industry you’re in. These environmental regulations can be made at the national, state and local level. This means your state or county may have different environmental regulations than a neighboring state or county. It can be complicated to determine exactly which regulations apply to your business. Once you know what you have to comply with, you must comply accurately, completely, and all the time.
Environmental regulation violations can lead to substantial fines and penalties. Governmental agencies usually impose fines for every day a business is out of compliance.
Whether you’re starting a new business or have been in operation for 20 years, Paperbark Law can help you navigate these regulations and ensure compliance. We like to set up initial meetings with our clients to get an understanding of your situation and your business. We offer flat-rate pricing for most projects.
We summarize and help clients understand the federal, state, and local environmental regulations that apply to their business. We break down these laws and regulations into plain English and help clients develop long term compliance plans. Environmental laws and regulations may change over time, however we maintain our client relationships by providing updates to any revisions.
