Regulations

Purpose and intent of Regulations

Many states and the U.S. federal system rely on regulations to enforce environmental law. For example, the law may state you can’t dump toxic substances in the river. Regulations are put in place so any company collecting toxic substances must do it properly and not dump it in the river. Permits are issued under guidance from the regulations and those permits are enforced by Guam EPA to ensure permitted entities follow rules and regulations so the law is not broken. Regulations are a key component to enforcing environmental law and protecting natural resources.

Most of Guam EPA’s regulations are found in Title 22 of the Guam Administrative Rules and Regulations (GARR). The following is a short list of the main chapters of GARR that give give a framework for Guam EPA to follow.
