Compliance

State Review Framework for Compliance and Enforcement Performance

The State Review Framework (SRF) consistently assesses EPA and state enforcement of the Clean Water Act (CWA), the Clean Air Act (CAA), and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Designed collaboratively in 2004 by EPA and the Environmental Council of the States (ECOS) Exit, EPA works in partnership with each state to create a final SRF report. These SRF reports allow EPA to identify recommendations for improvement to ensure fair and consistent enforcement and compliance programs across the states.
