Compliance Gap Assessments
RegComp has over 35 years experience with regulatory issues. Our staff has the expertise to guide your company into compliance. We have performed Compliance Gap Assessments for various types of industries in the private sector, including electronics, automotive, boating, healthcare, veterinarian, chemical, distributing, manufacturing, plastics, fiberglass pools and pharmaceuticals, as well as for governmental agencies and installations, including the U.S. Public Health Service, U.S. Customs and various military bases.
Compliance Gap Assessments include a review of the applicable regulations under the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) - Title 40 (EPA), Title 29 (OSHA), and Title 49 (DOT). All information provided to RegComp during the assessment will remain strictly confidential. Compliance Gap Assessment are generally completed in four segments: a general background and records review; a detailed inspection of each applicable facility area; an exit interview with facility staff, and a written report which illustrates specific areas of non-compliance and recommendations for correction.
During this portion of the evaluation, RegComp will review all background documents, local regulations, prior audit reports, permits and identify facility staff concerns. Personnel responsible for subject areas must be available for questioning. Additionally, any related plans and documents must be provided upon request, such as: shipping documents, hazardous waste manifests, training programs, written plans, worker injury logs and/or accident reports, etc.
Work areas and other locations within your facility will be visually inspected to determine compliance with current State and Federal regulations. We will assess your compliance with current permits, requirements for additional or modified permits, as well as your compliance with air, water, and waste management regulatory programs. Photographs of potential violations may be taken.
Background and Records Review
After the Compliance Gap Assessment has been completed, RegComp’s staff will conduct an exit interview with appropriate facility staff. The purpose of this interview is to inform you of any situations which may require immediate corrective action and provide you with the initial findings of the assessment.
Today, businesses are facing a tremendous challenge to interpret and comply with an abundance of regulations dictated by Federal, State and county laws. Non-compliance can result in heavy fines and in some cases, criminal prosecution. If you have received a Notice of Violation from a regulatory agency, we can potentially help you to resolve the problems and negotiate an amicable settlement agreement.
The written report will identify areas of non-compliance, potential fines, and will present recommendations for correcting non-compliant areas. This report shall be identified as “Confidential Information”.
