The USEPA has endorsed the use of risk-based decision-making in underground storage tank (UST) corrective action programs. ASTM, in cooperation with USEPA, is providing training on the RBCA process to over forty-nine state UST agencies. Over thirty states are in the process of implementing a RBCA program.
This is your opportunity to receive the same RBCA training your state regulators are receiving from the organization that developed the RBCA standard.

About ASTM and Sponsoring Committee E50
Recognizing the need for an authoritative risk-based corrective action standard, ASTM pulled together a multifunctional and multidisciplinary collection of professionals. These members of ASTM Committee E50 on Environmental Assessment and its Subcommittee E50.01 on Storage Tanks developed the standard upon which this course is based.
ASTM, celebrated it's 100th anniversary in 1998, is one of the world's largest voluntary standards development organizations. ASTM standards have grown to be among the world's most widely used and accepted documents. The 81-volume Annual Book of ASTM Standards contains over 12,000 standards written by 34,000 members on our 140 technical committees. These standards and related information are widely used throughout the world as the basis of purchasing and other contracts, codes, laws and regulations. ASTM Committee D-2 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants developed the standard used in this course.
This course will be taught by two highly qualified instructors who are members of ASTM Committee E50 on Environmental Assessment. These instructors were selected by the same ASTM task group responsible for developing the RBCA standard.
"This is one class I will apply immediately. The instructors were excellent and comments about procedures were honest. It will be extremely useful in my success at applying RBCA." Senior Project Scientist, Roy F. Weston, Inc.
"This course shows you how to apply this extremely useful tool … should save a lot of time and money in both site characterization and redemption." Project Manager, Ramos Environmental Engineering, Inc.
