In response to the growing number of environmental laws and regulations worldwide, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has adopted an environmental compliance program that identifies compliance problems before they are cited as violations by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In 1992, the FAA developed a program to maintain compliance with all Federal, state, and local environmental regulations. The goal is to protect human health and safety and the environment. The Southern Region of the FAA, which includes 8 states and the Caribbean area, developed and implemented a specific environmental assessment and management program tailored to the type and size of their facilities and operations. The resulting system - the Environmental Compliance Assessment Protocol - Federal Aviation Administration (ECAP-FAA) - combines Federal environmental regulations with documentation of good management practices and risk management information into a series of checklists that show legal requirements and list specific items or operations to review. ECAP-FAA incorporates existing checklists from EPA and private industry. The system has been tested at several FAA facilities. The manual is updated continually to address new environmental compliance laws and regulations.
