Course Description:

Environmental practitioners, attorneys, engineers, real estate professionals and developers must use the highest standard of care and responsibility when performing and assessing due diligence. On December 15, 2022, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a notice of a Final Rule approving the use of a new American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM) standard for conducting Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (Phase I ESA). The new standard, ASTM E1527-21, became active on February 13, 2023.  In New Jersey, a potential purchaser must conduct a Preliminary Assessment (N.J.A.C. 7:26E-3.1 and 3.2) as an appropriate inquiry.

We are here to help you do your homework and ensure regulatory requirements are met and the highest standard is achieved!

Throughout this 4-hour course, we will educate practitioners on the environmental risks and liabilities associated with real estate transactions; how environmental due diligence can limit those risks and liabilities; and identify applicable laws, regulations, standards, and guidance documents governing due diligence.

Attendees of this course will receive:

  • An overview of the types and components of environmental due diligence and when they should be performed in NJ.
  • A review of the two primary types of environmental assessments in New Jersey, the ASTM Phase Environmental Site Assessment (Phase I ESA) and the Preliminary Assessment (PA), and what they include, what they don't, the protections they offer, and when they should be performed.
  • An understanding of the role and legal liability of Licensed Site Remediation Professionals.
  • Knowledge of due diligence-related legal nuances that are commonly encountered during real estate transactions.
  • Experience gained from numerous case studies used for illustration purposes.
  • New 2023 ASTM standard practice components will be used.
