The latest round of U.S. EPA regulatory initiatives includes the new mandatory Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule issued on October 30, 2009. Under the new rule, the EPA will, for the first time, require large emitters of greenhouse gases to monitor and report their emissions. The new rule went into effect on December 29, 2009.

Lion Technology Director of Corporate Training, Scott Dunsmore, an acclaimed expert on environmental regulations, stresses that, “It is imperative for industry to keep up-to-date with changing regulations. EH&S excellence can provide your company with a competitive advantage in today’s business environment.”

The program is also essential for those who are applying for ISO 14000 registrations and must know how to systematically identify all “relevant legal requirements” as required by the International Organization of Standardization (ISO).
