About the Instructor

This course is taught by a professional who contributed to the development of the ASTM Phase II standard as well as the Phase I and Transaction Screen standards.

About ASTM and Sponsoring Committee E50

ASTM is one of the world's largest voluntary standards development organizations. 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 its Subcommittee E50.02 on Commercial Real Estate Transactions developed the standards upon which this course is based. For more information on Committee E50 go to our E50 technical committee page.
