Subject of ASTM International Technical and Professional Training Course

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., 24 November 2008-Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments is the subject of a three-day ASTM International training course to be held nine times in 2009.

Many companies offer training on these standards, but the ASTM International course offers an opportunity to be trained by the organization that developed the standards. The latest version of the Phase I standard, ASTM E1527-05, and information on the USEPA rule on All Appropriate Inquiry will be covered in this course.

Recognizing the need for authoritative site assessment standards, ASTM International pulled together environmental professionals, real estate and insurance professionals, lawyers and government representatives to develop its site assessment standards.

ASTM E1527, Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process, is the national standard for conducting Phase I assessments and includes historical records research of the subject property; site reconnaissance of the subject property; interviews with owners/occupants of the subject property; and documentation of findings and report preparation.

ASTM E1903, Standard Guide for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase II Environmental Site Assessment Process, focuses on:
o Proper planning and performance of Phase II investigations into Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs);
o Learning various approaches used in the Phase II process to generate additional information regarding the identification and nature of potential contaminants associated with RECs identified during the Phase I and/or Transaction Screen Processes to assist in making informed business decisions concerning commercial real estate transactions; and
o Gaining an understanding of the level of knowledge necessary to satisfy the innocent purchaser defense under the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) and why due diligence is necessary.

The cost for the course is $1,095 and includes copies of the Phase I and Phase II standards plus 18 additional ASTM standards related to the Phase II process, course notes, case studies and information about ASTM International and Committee E50. The following is the training schedule for 2009:
