U.S. EPA Credible Evidence Rule Promulgated

This page last reviewed April 2, 2009

The U.S. EPA promulgated Credible Evidence Revisions on February 24, 1997. This controversial rulemaking allows the use of any credible data to prove that a violation has occurred. Prior to the promulgation of this rule, the use of any creditable data was limited to identifying the duration of the violation for the purpose of assessing penalties. A summary of comments received and the text of the rulemaking can be found in Miscellaneous Documents under the section called "U.S. EPA Guidance Documents From TTN."
