The newly updated and revised The ABCs of Environmental Regulation, 2nd Edition, from Government Institutes takes a practical and basic approach to explaining the scope of environmental regulations and providing concise yet comprehensive discussions of 38 federal environmental acts.

Written in non-technical language, this popular handbook offers easy-to-read explanations to benefit a variety of readers, including non-environmental professionals, new and experienced environmental professionals, and students. This new edition covers more federal acts--many of which are not well known and rarely discussed in other environmental law books--than the previous edition. It also reflects the changes that have occurred in the federal environmental regulations, including shifts in Superfund cleanups, chemical safety provisions and site security for air, medical waste restrictions, wetlands protection provisions, and contaminated site restorations.

Each chapter summarizes one key subject area of federal regulation enabling readers to use this book as both a quick-reference guide for understanding the scope, issues, and focus of the federal programs and as a concise macro-picture of the federal environmental regulations. Summaries include history, requirements, permits, technology, enforcement measures, locations of species of particular concern, special programs, related regulations, and compliance pertaining to each regulation. A unique timeline of federal environmental regulation is also included.

Programs covered include air, water, waste and storage tanks, safety, contaminant release response, and nature and natural resources. Acts covered include the Clean Air Act, Noise Control Act, Clean Water Act, Oil Pollution Act, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, Occupational Safety and Health Act, Toxic Substances Control Act, Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act, Superfund, Soil and Water Resources Conservation Act, and Endangered Species Act.

New areas covered in this edition include Prevention of Pollution from Ships, Shore Protection Act, National Coastal Zone Monitoring Act, Estuary Restoration Act, Organotin Antifouling Paint Control Act, and international environmental and quality standards (ISO).
