EPA’s “Agriculture Regulatory Matrix”

EPA has created a regulatory matrix titled, "Major Existing EPA Laws and Programs That Could Affect Agricultural Producers" (PDF) (23 pp, 887K) that provides a succinct, general description of EPA’s requirements for both regulatory and voluntary programs. This compliance assistance tool should be used by agricultural producers, federal and state regulators, and third party information providers who provide information and services to agricultural producers.
