Williams Mullen presents "The Times They Are a Changin': Implementing the New ASTM Phase I Site Assessment Standard and the Revised VRP Regulations," a seminar on March 20, 2014 with reception immediately following.

Change is here.  The ASTM Standard for performing Phase I Site Assessments has been revised, and the regulations governing cleanups under the Virginia Voluntary Remediation Program (VRP) have been amended. The stakes are high – Performing a Phase I site assessment that complies with the ASTM Standard is a necessary requirement of obtaining landowner liability protection under federal and state law.  Similarly, complying with the revised VRP regulations is a necessary requirement for obtaining a VRP Certificate of Satisfactory Completion. Are you up-to-date on what’s changed?

Please join us for a complimentary seminar on these topics.  Our speakers are:

  • Channing J. Martin, Chair and Partner, Environment and Natural Resources Group, Williams Mullen
  • Lynne C. Rhode, Partner, Environment and Natural Resources Group, Williams Mullen

Issues to be covered include:

  • How the new ASTM E1527-13 Standard differs from the old Standard.
  • Cost implications for property owners and purchasers.
  • What consultants sometimes overlook or misinterpret.
  • How to ensure your Phase I Site Assessment meets the Standard and why that’s important.
  • How the new VRP regulations differ from the old regulations.
  • Risk assessment challenges under the VRP.
  • The best way to implement land use controls.
