The Pennsylvania Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) Environmental Management Assistance Program (EMAP) has come out with a new environmental checklist for small manufacturers, to ensure that the proper environmental regulations are being followed.

Determining what requirements pertain to a manufacturing facility can sometimes be difficult, so EMAP has created an environmental checklist addressing issues such as air emissions, wastes, water, storage tanks, hazardous materials and emergency planning, construction, and sustainability to help identify what regulations could be a potential concern for business owners.

Whether a business has been around for years, just started up, or is currently expanding operations, it is important to keep up to date with the current environmental standards to spare troubles down the line. Small manufacturing firms are encouraged to use this checklist as a starting point to make sure that their business is on the right track with environmental safety compliance.

Since environmental and regulatory requirements vary by location and business activity, small businesses should contact EMAP for additional assistance by calling their toll-free hotline at 877-ASK-EMAP or by emailing .
