Environmental Audit Privilege & Immunity

Environmental Audit Privilege & ImmunityIt is important to the success of Michigan's environmental protection efforts that businesses, municipalities, and public agencies take self-initiated actions to assess or audit their compliance with environmental laws and correct any violations found. For example, it is estimated that thousands of small businesses in Michigan have never applied for or obtained necessary environmental permits, fearing the disclosure of information to state agencies would lead to enforcement and penalties.

The Environmental Audit Privilege and Immunity Law provides incentives for businesses to perform environmental audits and promptly report and correct violations. This will lead to increased compliance with environmental requirements and further protection of Michigan's outstanding natural resources.
