About Permitting and Compliance

Federal and Local permits working in concert

Permitting is very important for business owners, farmers, contractors, developers, investors and the military. Guam EPA enforces multiple, locally-mandated permits. These include permits to protect Guam’s air, water and other valuable natural resources. As with Guam’s environmental law, many of these permits were generated based on federal programs.

Guam EPA also works hard to ensure those going through the permitting process are aware of all the permits they are required to get to be in compliance with the law. This includes making sure project planners are aware of federal processes through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Federal Consistency Requirements locally carried out by the Bureau of Statistics and Plans Guam Coastal Management Program, and other federally-mandated planning processes.
