TPEM Technical Engineering Hardship

On January 28, 2014 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) submitted and achieved final approval for amended Technical Engineering Hardship Relief provisions for equipment manufacturers under 40 CFR1039.625(m). The ECO team has been working closely with EPA staff to develop a clear path for OEM’s to acquire additional exemptions due to extreme and unusual circumstances that are clearly outside of the equipment manufacturer’s control. ECO clients will benefit from existing infrastructure and program management tools developed in order to simplify the process.
