Our regulatory lawyers assist clients in understanding and navigating the complex web of federal, state and local environmental laws. Our primary goal is to help clients comply with the law in an effort to avoid the exorbitant fines and penalties that can be assessed on unwitting business owners. We are well-versed in many substantive areas, including retail industry requirements (with particular emphasis on grocery stores), pesticide product labeling and sales, weights and measures, underground storage tanks, hazardous waste management, among others.
Hazardous Waste Compliance Programs
From large industrial manufacturing facilities to your local grocery store, hazardous waste generators have been the recent target of government enforcement actions. Our team of experienced regulatory lawyers routinely develop and implement national and state-specific hazardous waste compliance programs for our clients.
Weights and Measures Compliance Programs
Weights and measures requirements are enacted and enforced at the federal, state, and local levels. Our regulatory attorneys are uniquely experienced in weights and measures matters from a nationwide perspective. This perspective allows us to develop and implement unique national and state-specific weights and measures and packaging and labeling compliance programs for our clients.
We routinely advise and support our client’s reporting and implementation of best management practices in compliance with various regulatory programs, such as the California Air Resources Board’s Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gas Emissions (MRR), and Refrigerant Management Program (MRP), and the California Department of Toxic Substances Control’s Safer Consumer Products regulations.
Product Labeling and Registration
Our regulatory lawyers counsel clients on state and federal pesticide labeling and registration requirements, as well as Proposition 65 warnings.
