Helping communities and businesses access compliance, technical and financial assistance for their environmental needs.

On March 31 – April 1, 2020, Ohio EPA will host our 11th Compliance Assistance Conference at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Through our conference, you will gain valuable information and contacts to help you with your environmental compliance responsibilities.

Our keynote speaker the morning of day one is Ohio EPA Director Laurie A. Stevenson. She will discuss Agency goals and objectives. Our mid-day plenary session presenter is U.S. EPA Region 5 Administrator Kurt Thiede.

A large part of the conference is targeted to businesses and others who need to know the basics about environmental compliance. However, the agenda also includes advanced topics, such as Title V permits and reporting and a special four-hour SPCC session and Agency division chiefs will share priorities and discuss hot topics during the plenary panel session.
