Additional Internal Controls Would Improve the EPA’s System for Electronic Disclosure of Environmental Violations

Report Number

Report #22-E-0051, June 30, 2022

Without additional internal controls, the EPA cannot ensure that it effectively screens regulated entities’ self-disclosures of environmental violations to identify and mitigate significant concerns, such as criminal conduct and potential imminent hazards. If not mitigated, these significant concerns could pose threats to human health and the environment.
