    How You Will Benefit
    Many states have adopted voluntary corrective action programs and Brownfields programs that use risk-based corrective action principles. A common element of these programs is the use of Activity and Use Limitations (AULs) (also referred to as "Institutional Controls", "Deed Restrictions', or "Land Use Controls") to achieve either an "acceptable risk" or a "no significant risk" level.

    This course will answer your questions on how AULs can be effectively implemented and maintained.
    * The purpose of AULs in the remedial action process and the types of AULs that are most commonly available.
    * How to incorporate AULs into remediation programs using a risk-based approach to corrective action.
    * Screening and balancing criteria that should be applied in determining whether a particular AUL may be appropriate.
    * The process for evaluating which AUL, or combination of AULs, best achieves the "no significant risk" standard.
    * The importance of addressing long term stewardship concerns.

    About ASTM and Sponsoring Committee E50 on Environmental Assessment
    Organized in 1898. ASTM is one of the world's largest voluntary standards development organizations. 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 Committee E50 and Subcommittee E50.04 on Performance Standards Related to Environmental Regulatory Programs developed the standard upon which this course is based.
