Katherine L Vaccaro, Esq., Partner, Manko, Gold, Katcher & Fox, LLP | Michael Nines, P.E., LEED AP, Technical Consultant, Manko, Gold, Katcher & Fox, LLP
There's a right way and a wrong way to conduct an audit, and the difference can have significant compliance implications for your facility.  Kate and Mike will address the importance of clearly defining the audit scope from the start, the benefits of getting a lawyer involved early on to make sure the information collected is protected under attorney privilege doctrines, and, most critically, what to do when an audit reveals potential noncompliance with applicable regulatory or permit-based requirements.  Mike has led internal audits for more than 100 companies, and Kate has extensive experience in working with companies to make sure audit findings are presented properly, including identifying when they need to report.
