Did you know that there is a way for an individual/corporation to identify areas of non-compliance within their own facility and/or specific facility operations and receive immunity from administrative and civil penalties that would otherwise be associated with non-compliance? The Texas Environmental, Health and Safety Audit Privilege Act (Audit Act), first established by House Bill 2473 in 1995, provides incentives for individuals/corporations (“persons”) to conduct voluntary self-audits of their facilities and/or specific operations and implement prompt corrective action where violations are identified. The incentives provided by the Audit Act include immunity from administrative and civil penalties as well as limited evidentiary privilege for certain information gathered during the voluntary self-audit. However, in order to be eligible for the immunity provisions, the individual/corporation must follow the process described in the Audit Act.
