This 3-day course covers the ASTM Environmental Site Assessment Standard Practices for the Phase I Site Assessment (E 1527-05) and the Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (E 1903). You will gain an understanding of how to use the standards and how the standards affect the way you do business.
The instructors will also discuss the "Innocent Landowner Defense" under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), and why due diligence is necessary.
The first day of this course focuses on ASTM E 1527-05. It covers all of the upcoming changes to the standard as well as the Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act.
The second day focuses on how to properly plan and perform Phase II investigations using ASTM E 1903 Standard Guide for Phase II Environmental Site Assessments.

About ASTM and Sponsoring Committee
ASTM standards have grown to be among the world's most widely used and accepted documents. Recognizing the need for authoritative site assessment standards, ASTM pulled together environmental professionals, real estate and insurance professionals, lawyers, and government representatives. These members of ASTM Committee E50 and its Subcommittee E50.02 on Commercial Real Estate Transactions developed the standard upon which this course is based. For more information on Committee E50 contact Kate McClung or go to our E50 technical committee page.
