During your time as a contractor, you’ll be in contact with at least one of the primary regulatory agencies, if not more. A regulator is responsible for overseeing a particular project or process to ensure that proper protocol is being followed. They evaluate compliance in accordance with local and federal law, and then they report their findings to their supervisors.
As every contractor knows or will soon find out, a visit from a regulator can be tense and unnerving. Whether you have plenty of experience working with regulators or none at all, the entire process may seem frustrating and intimidating. One of the best things you can do is to build rapport with the agency and the regulator assigned to your project. This makes everyone’s job much easier and the process much smoother. Read on for some practical advice on how to strengthen your contractor-regulator relationship.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is a regulatory agency that oversees the containment of potentially hazardous materials and contaminants.
