Michigan Webinar Series: Michigan's Framework for Due Care Compliance

Date and Time:
11/14/2019 at 3:00 PM, Duration: 45 Minutes


The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) predecessor to the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) passed rules and promulgated regulations starting in 1994 that dealt with “Due Care” obligations. These are rules and regulations whereby the owners and operators of a property that is contaminated are required to take actions to ensure that the contamination does not cause unacceptable exposures and that the contamination is not exacerbated. This obligation applies to all owners/operators of such property whether or not they are the responsible party for the contamination.

This webinar will discuss the history and the specifics of the Michigan Due Care rules/regulations and the two categories of regulations, which govern Due Care. We will also give examples of compliance with each Due Care obligation, as well as instances where a formal Documentation of Due Care Compliance is required for financing the acquisition of real property.
