By Vorys

On December 28, 2008, U.S. EPA published direct final amendments to the All Appropriate Inquiry Rule, recognizing ASTM International’s E2247-08 Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process for Forestland and Rural Property as compliance with the All Appropriate Inquiries regulation and allowing its use to satisfy the statutory requirements for conducting all appropriate inquiries under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act. This standard may be used to investigate large tracts, greater than 120 acres, of forestland or rural property. The amendment will go into effect on January 22, 2009.
