This product contains three separate auditing sections of 'phases' intended to provide both a micro and macro view of environmental management and help identify root causes to audit findings. Phase I provides for a review of facility conditions in regard to specific media areas (e.g. air, water, and solid and hazardous waste) with a focus on compliance with Federal environmental requiements. Phase II of the protocol examines cross-cutting issues and approaches such as pollution prevention and eight different organizational disciplines that help foster success in the technical management areas outlined in Phase I. Phase III examines the facility's management of all environmental programs to help establish compliance as the 'starting point' rather than 'goal' of environmental performance.
