Compliance Inspection vs. Compliance Assistance
  • Compliance inspections CRS 30-20-113 gives the
    Department inspection authority.
  • Violations trigger enforcement process
  • Depending on severity or recalcitrance,
    violations can lead to formal compliance order or
    litigation
  • Compliance assistance site visit
  • To provide you with help understanding the
    regulations
  • To suggest steps for improved compliance

Background on Cross Media Compliance Assistance
at CDPHE
  • 2003 CDPHE created cross media compliance
    assistance workgroup
  • Goals
  • Improved customer service
  • Improved efficiency
  • Engage in sector-based projects to achieve
    outcomes greater than regulatory compliance
  • -Auto Salvage Sector, Correctional Facilities

Cross Media Compliance Assistance
  • Air, Stormwater and Solid Waste (or Air Solid
    Waste)
  • Onsite assistance provided to operators in
    understanding and implementing the regulations
  • Work in cooperative mode to identify whats going
    well, what needs improvement
  • Identify and correct problems outside of
    enforcement process

7
Benefits to Compliance Assistance
  • Efficiency
  • Training
  • Chance to self-correct deficiencies outside of
    the enforcement process
  • More collaborative than compliance inspection
  • Better prepared for compliance inspection

8
Challenges to Implementing the Cross Media
Approach
  • Coordination of inspector schedules
  • Longer site visit required, more resource burden
  • Reluctance to share information, requires trust

9
Ideas for Overcoming Challenges
  • Always announced
  • Point out what facility is doing well
  • Solution oriented
  • Enforcement amnesty
  • Approach from a partnering standpoint, 2-way
    dialogue
  • Send out inspection checklist in advance
  • Increase familiarity with quarterly outreach
    meetings

Future Directions for Compliance Inspections /
Assistance
  • Regional multi-media compliance assistance Find
    host sites and invite other operators in the
    surrounding area
  • Self-certification Program Compliance assistance
    prepares operators for self-audit
