The Superfund Recycling Equity Act (SREA) Reasonable Care Compliance Program saves both time and money by helping scrap processors and brokers perform, with ‘reasonable care,’ due diligence on a scrap-consuming facility’s environmental compliance record as required by federal law to help provide a valid defense against a Superfund liability claim. Taking advantage of ISRI’s SREA Reasonable Care Compliance Program spares the time of having to dig through complicated regulations and environmental compliance records before determining whether or not to ship to a customer. Participation in this program gives you a competitive advantage over other scrap processors and brokers.
ISRI selected KERAMIDA as its vendor of choice to provide SREA Reports. KERAMIDA is an environmental consulting firm with 30 years of expertise in conducting environmental due diligence, access to numerous federal, state and local regulatory databases, and experience interpreting environmental regulations and site-specific records. Under contract with ISRI, KERAMIDA’s professionals will compile, for each site ordered, a SREA report which contains a concise, user-friendly facility evaluation along with supporting backup data gathered from searching over 1,200 federal, state, and local databases; FOIA requests; and facility questionnaires.
