Guidance on Tracking CAA, CWA, and RCRA Information Requests in ICIS (06.13.2017)

Guidance on Tracking CAA, CWA, and RCRA Information Requests in ICIS In response to a recent request from senior management, the Office of Compliance and the Office of Civil Enforcement issued guidance, dated May 15, 2017, on tracking information requests in ICIS. The guidance can be found at: http://intranet.epa.gov/oeca/oce/io/documents/interiminformationrequesttrackingguidance.pdf. The new guidance describes the data that must be reported in ICIS. A related memorandum signed by Susan Shinkman, Director of OCE, dated May 31, 2017, established procedures for OECA review of certain information requests before they are issued. (The memorandum can be found at: http://intranet.epa.gov/oeca/oc/etdd/reporting/fy2017/index.html) The information requests to be tracked by the region or HQ office issuing the request and reviewed by OECA include requests based on the following authorities: • CAA Sec. 114 • CWA Sec. 308, and • RCRA Sec. 3007. As stated in the guidance, such requests must be entered into the ICIS Compliance Monitoring Module, beginning on May 15, 2017. A subset of those requests, if they meet the criteria in the above referenced Shinkman memo, must be reviewed by OECA prior to their issuance by enforcement staff. This became effective on May 31,2017 For further information, please contact Dan Holic at 202-564-7117 or holic.daniel@epa.gov SOURCE: FY 2017 Reporting Plan, June 13, 2017
