Custom Compliance

For over 26 years, Pinnacle has provided an extensive range of environmental support services to a wide variety of clients through the use of its Custom Compliance Services (CCS) Package.  The CCS Package was developed to cater to the differing needs of our clients.  Some clients prefer a full servicing of all environmental projects, while others may have experience with, and in-house expertise, to take care of some of their projects with their own staff.  The CCS allows facilities to pick and choose the size and breadth of support they desire and can be updated or changed over time as needed. 

Pinnacle serves many clients through a CCS package.  Customizable compliance related services allow our clients to balance their in-house and consulting needs to maximize their compliance efforts.  This CCS Package is just another way that we Pinnacle provides superior environmental engineering and compliance services to our broad client base.




Compliance Assessments

The compliance assessment is an evaluation of your current, and to a limited degree, your past environmental compliance status.  Our experienced staff will conduct a regulatory review to determine the environmental legal requirements for your operations and will evaluate compliance with respect to these requirements.  The compliance status of your operations will be assessed against, at a minimum, the following topics:

I.  Air Quality
II. Wastewater/Stormwater Quality
III. Hazardous Waste Management
IV. Spill Prevention
V. Storage Tanks
VI Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know

We’ll prepare a detailed Environmental Compliance Assessment Report for your operations.  This report can be used to identify gaps in areas such as permitting, environmental reporting, written programs, and hazardous materials management.  A Corrective Action Plan will be developed to assist in defining compliance objectives and tracking corrective actions.


Compliance Walk-Through

A compliance walk through is used to identify and correct areas of noncompliance that historically have been ongoing problems for manufacturing facilities.  The walk through will include a review of the current status for the following items:

  • Upcoming Reporting Requirements
  • Status of Previously Identified Compliance Issues
  • Review of Current Compliance
  • Review of Record Keeping
  • Upcoming Regulatory Changes
  • Plant Management Updates

The emphasis during the compliance walk-throughs is to identify problems, conduct impromptu training in the area involved on how to maintain compliance, and document both the noncompliance and the training.
