Continuing Obligations:  Tools for Maintaining Liability Protection After AAI

Panel Discussion - Tuesday, May 6, 2008 - 2:45 pm 

This panel, including American Brownfields Assurance Company (ABAC) representatives and partners, will discuss the need to satisfy continuing obligations in order to maintain liability protection under CERCLA, the tools for doing so, and the status of ASTM's Continuing Obligations Standards.  Tools include both commercial and not-for-profit approaches to Continuing Obligations and IC/EC Stewardship, financial products, insurance products, and electronic and in-the-field verification and monitoring methodologies.  Perspectives will also be offered regarding regulatory drivers for maintaining continuing obligations, other than liability protection and possible certification standards for environmental professionals conducting Continuing Obligations.
