NYSDEC Briefs Brownfields Parties on 2013 Certificate of Completion Procedures

By Mike Lesser

On March 7, 2013, the DEC held its annual Certificate of Completion ("COC") briefing for Brownfield Cleanup Program ("BCP") parties anticipating the issuance of a complete and approved COC in the 2013 calendar year. The DEC currently projects issuing up to fifty-nine COC this year. The process itself involves the parallel development of series of critical documents including Site Management Plans ("SMP"), Final Engineering Reports ("FER"), and Easements. The delivery of these documents and any relevant attachments should be in approved formats or media and are generally time sensitive. These also may require proof of notice and service. Given the complexity of the COC procedures and the ever shrinking DEC staff it behooves all interested attorneys and consultants to be proactive and current with all BCP and COC procedures, templates, forms and checklists. For more information, consult the following NYSDEC information links:
