The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has launched its new eDisclosure Portal, which will modernize the implementation of the agency’s self-disclosure policies. Through its Audit Policy and Small Business Compliance Policy, EPA has long encouraged businesses to self-disclose civil environmental violations, offering penalty mitigation and other incentives for companies that discover, promptly disclose and expeditiously correct environmental violations. The eDisclosure Portal offers disclosing entities an online tool to efficiently disclose routine violations. For certain violations, notices of determination will be issued automatically.
