Just as the state is held responsible for the permitting of commercial or industrial processes that may have environmental effects, so too is the state in charge of enforcement. Regulatory compliance simply means that an entity meets the terms of regulations set by federal, state and local governments. Although some states may rely on federal enforcement of certain regulations, the state of Illinois handles regulatory compliance for the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. The state is bound to evaluate all entities that may pose environmental concerns for the region, and confirm that all stages of all processes meet regulatory standards. These evaluations occur generally through an on-site visit and testing by certified authorities.
Environmental permitting is a vital aspect of your construction or business plans, to avoid violating regulations.
