Region 8

Enforcement and Compliance

The Region 8 Office of Enforcement, Compliance and Environmental Justice (ECEJ) enforces federal environmental law in a variety of ways, including strategic planning and targeting, setting enforcement priorities, developing compliance monitoring programs, undertaking inspection activities, and pursuing appropriate enforcement actions. We work with states and tribes to define oversight roles and promote effective enforcement strategies and engage in various compliance assistance and incentive activities.
