Farella Braun + Martel Environmental Release Reporting Mobile Site

12/16/2013 Articles

Farella Braun + Martel LLP’s Environmental Law Department has launched its mobile site, www.farellareleasereporting.com, to better serve the needs of its clients. Specifically developed for use on smartphones and tablets, the user-friendly mobile site provides clients with the reporting requirements under federal and California law for spills and other releases into the environment.

“We are excited to provide a convenient new way to deliver this service to our clients,” said James Colopy, chair of Farella’s Environmental Law Department. “Now our clients have instant access to critical information when they need it and where they need it.”

The release reporting mobile site serves as a reference guide summarizing major federal and California release reporting requirements for accidental spills from hazardous waste and substances to sewage, oil and petroleum products, PCBs and asbestos. The site features links to key sections of relevant laws, details on how and when to report and click to call links to phone numbers for federal and state agencies. Integrating with the native capabilities of mobile devices, information on the site can be shared and bookmarked. An additional feature added to the reference guide is the “Release Response & Reporting” page, outlining initial steps to take and what to document.
