Frequent Questions

Where can I obtain EPA compliance and enforcement data?


The information that EPA uses to manage and assess performance of the Agency's enforcement and compliance assurance program is stored in several national data systems. These systems were built to support specific environmental statutes. In general, EPA regions or states input data into the systems.

Enforcement and Compliance History Online (ECHO) or Envirofacts provide the easiest access for the public.  Public access to some of the systems may be restricted. If ECHO, Envirofacts, or the other systems please visit EPA's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) site to learn how to request additional information.
