Compliance assistance means helping businesses, federal facilities, local governments and tribes meet their environmental regulatory requirements.

Compliance assistance providers help regulated communities and businesses comply with environmental laws through one-to-one counseling, online resource centers, fact sheets, guides and training. Providers include EPA regional office staff; state, local and tribal governments; federal and state small business and pollution prevention technical assistance extension agents, consultants, and trade associations.

Compliance assistance is most effective when used in an integrated strategy combining compliance monitoring (inspections), compliance incentives and auditing (self-disclosure policies) and enforcement.
