Short of a crisis, how can a company evaluate its compliance costs? This session will discuss the hallmarks of a strong compliance approach and provide a step-by-step evaluative process for ensuring that your company is getting a strong compliance return on its EHS monitoring, record keeping, and reporting.

  • State of practice—how do companies comply?
  • What is working well?
  • What is happening at the law firm level, among agencies, governments?
  • Ramifications of efforts in Europe and how these affect the U.S. market
