Want to review and understand the changes to the ASTM Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) Standard as well as the new information required to produce a compliant ESA?
The Phase I ESA has long been the industry standard to evaluate potential environmental concerns in commercial real estate transactions. The methods and protocols are described by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and provide "good commercial and customary practice" to conduct environmental due diligence. Last revised in 2005, the Phase I standard is updated every 8 years.
This NAEM webinar archive will review several key changes to the ASTM Phase I ESA Standard including:
- Revised and New Definitions

This program archive is intended for any and all EHS professionals involved in:
