On June 29, 2020, the EPA issued a memo notifying applicable members of the regulated community that effective August 31, 2020, it is terminating the temporary policy suspending certain monitoring and reporting requirements.
The controversial policy was originally put into place on March 26, 2020 to address issues related to compliance due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the EPA left open the possibility that on a “state or national basis, in whole or in part, at any earlier time, taking into account changing conditions in a state or region of the country” the policy could be terminated prior to August 31. However, if that were to happen, the EPA would provide at least seven days notification prior to doing so.
