Get Ready for a New ASTM E1527 Phase I ESA Standard: What are the Proposed Revisions?
September 29, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
It seems like just yesterday we were discussing updates to the 2005 Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESA) standard, which became the now current ASTM E1527-13 “Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process”. That was back in 2013 and here we are 8-years later with another revision to the standard awaiting ASTM Committee approval. Why another revision? According to the ASTM bylaws, every eight years ASTM standards must be revised, reapproved as-is, or abandoned. This allows for an opportunity to improve the standard, make clarifications, update the standard to meet the ever-changing environmental regulations, and to address potential issues with the standard that have been identified since put into practice. The ASTM E1527 Task Group has been meeting regularly over the past 2-years reviewing the text of the current Phase I ESA standard, establishing focus groups, and proposing changes and clarifications. This webinar will provide a refresher on the essential components of the Phase I ESA standard and discuss the proposed changes likely to appear in the new standard. Register now to attend!
