Land Assessment Services is ready to implement ASTM E 1527-13, as November 2nd marks its release date, we are told. This new version updates ASTM E 1527-05 and changes some key definitions, adds an emphasis on vapor intrusion assessment, and requires more in-person review of regulatory files during the completion of a Phase I environmental site assessment (ESA). This updated standard had to endure a rigorous review by the EPA for compliance with its All Appropriate Inquiry (AAI) rule. LAS is brainstorming now on how to add the new tasks into our workflow with significant impact to our pricing. We think our work product has always exceeded the ASTM standard anyway, as we adhere to the “I want to be able to sleep at night” approach to providing our professional services.
