Compliance Monitoring Strategy (CMS)
The EPA requires all states to follow policy regarding compliance evaluation and inspection activities. The Compliance Monitoring Strategy (CMS) outlines how states should evaluate the compliance status of a facility and the frequency of evaluations. Data assoicated with compliance activities is uploaded to the EPA by the DAQ on a monthly basis. This data can be viewed at EPA's Enforcement and Compliance History Online (ECHO).
