ABOUT THE EVENT

A Workshop on "What You Need to Know as a Phase I EP that is Not in the ASTM E1527 Standard" will be held Tuesday, October 23, 2012. Co-Sponsored by ASTM Committee E50 on Environmental Assessment, Risk Management and Corrective Action and the Environmental Consultants Roundtable, the workshop will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, GA, in conjunction with the October standards development meetings of the committee.

Objective
The objective of the workshop, co-sponsored by the ASTM E 50 Committee and the Environmental Consultants Roundtable, is to provide a forum for the discussion of topics relevant to the conduct of Phase I environmental site assessments that are not prescriptively dealt with in the E 1527-05 standard.
