Environmental Compliance

Environmental Compliance Management Improvement

In response to recommendations made by the President's Management Council (PMC) on improving how federal agencies assure environmental compliance, the Department of Energy developed an Implementation Plan that identifies five priority areas for action:

  • State Management's Expectations for Compliance
  • Identify Root Causes for Non-Compliance
  • Improve Environmental Audit and Corrective Action Processes
  • Improve the Collection and Use of Environmental Performance Data
  • Identify and Share Best Practices and Lessons Learned

As part of this Implementation Plan, DOE will undertake efforts to better understand the root cause(s) of the various non-compliances, and will reflect the knowledge gained in the development of any needed follow-on guidance and coordinated efforts for attaining and maintaining compliant operations.
