IHMM Credential Recognition

Below you will see the credential badges that are now in each CHMM, CHMP, CDGT, CDGP, Student CHMM, CSHM, CSMP, and ASHM certificant’s MYIHMM account. Every IHMM certificant may use these badges, linked as those below are to their IHMM credential page, for their email signatures, business cards, and other social media applications. You’re justifiably proud of the accomplishment of having earned your credential and you can show the rest of the world. Simply right-click on the badge of choice, then save as to your computer, and then load it to wherever you want to use it, and please link that back to https://ihmm.org/.

Phone: 301-984-8969 | [email protected]

IHMM Certificant Recognition

Throughout our certificant’s MYIHMM accounts are placed 10 Year, 20 Year, and 30 Year badges signifying their longevity as an IHMM certified professional.

With a link from your credential badge to the IHMM website [see above] you can not only stand out as an IHMM-certified professional, you can also promote IHMM credentials to others. Right-click on the badge of choice, save as to your computer, then load it to whatever medium you choose.

IHMM has Distinguished Diplomates and Fellows of the Institute badges to the appropriate people in the MYIHMM database. These two badges are accompanied by lapel pins sent to each of those distinguished by holding these designations.

In 2019 Mark Bruce from AHMP and Gene Guilford from IHMM worked on a project to get the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to recognize the CHMM and CDGT credentials. With Mark’s work on the ground in  Pennsylvania, we succeeded.

  • We have already succeeded in 13 states – New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Indiana, California, Colorado, Nebraska, Minnesota, Arkansas, Oklahoma. Ohio, North Dakota, and Georgia. [Red states in the map above]. These are states where IHMM credentials are cited or 40 CFR 312.10 is cited by reference.
  • We have partially succeeded in another 16 states – Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Arizona, Kansas, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Florida, Delaware, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Maine. [Orange/Black Stripe states in the map above] These are states where the requirements of an “environmental professional” or QEP are cited that coincide with an IHMM credential so that relatively little work would need to be done to clarify the desired outcome.
  • We have 21 states where no reference to an IHMM credential is made in either statute or regulation, nor is there anything defined in the area of an environmental professional. These states will require legislation or regulatory work. [Yellow states in the map above].

In January 2021 Mark at AHMP and Gene at IHMM has launched 45 in 5, getting the other 45 states to recognize our credentials in 5 years. If we can find a volunteer like Mark in other states [see above] we can work with those volunteers on crafting the right message to the right agencies in state governments across the country. If we find enough volunteers we can get this done in less than 5 years.

In January 2022 Gene Guilford released the 40 CFR § 312.10 EPA regulation that states a private certification that meets or exceeds the requirements of the regulation is an Environmental Professional under the regulation. Here is the crosswalk between the 40 CFR § 312.10 EPA regulation and the Certified Hazardous Materials Manager [CHMM] blueprint. The CHMM meets or exceeds the requirements of an Environmental Professional. 

Here’s what we ask each volunteer to do:

  • Watch legislative and regulatory developments in your state that provide an opportunity for us to create amendments or other interventions
  • Be willing to speak with regulators and legislators in your area about the recognition efforts we craft together

EPA’s Industrial Stormwater Sector-Specific Fact Sheet Stakeholder Meetings

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is hosting a series of public meetings in Fall 2022 to inform updates to EPA’s industrial stormwater fact sheet series. Last updated in 2006, EPA developed a fact sheet to provide guidance to each of the 29 industrial sectors covered under the Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP), which authorizes stormwater discharges from industrial activity in areas where EPA is the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting authority. Each fact sheet describes the types of facilities included in the sector, typical pollutants associated with the sector, and types of stormwater control measures used to minimize the discharge of the pollutants. These resources are an important part of EPA’s industrial stormwater program to assist facilities in managing their stormwater discharges. The industrial stormwater fact sheet series is used by a variety of other stakeholders, including facilities covered under state industrial stormwater permits and other industry groups.

Since industries and stormwater control measures may evolve over time, EPA is undertaking an effort to review and update the fact sheets. In January 2022, the Agency published a Federal Register Notice seeking written comments on the fact sheets. EPA received many valuable comments, as well as input that highlighted areas in need of further clarification and interest in continuing the dialogue with EPA on these resources. In response to this request, the Agency will be hosting a series of public meetings focused on certain industrial sectors to hear more about stakeholders’ individual real-life experiences with industrial stormwater management. Through these meetings, EPA would also like to engage those stakeholders who may not have had the chance to submit comments to attend and share their thoughts.

 EPA is particularly focused on hearing stakeholder’s input on: common activities, pollutant sources, and associated pollutants at facilities in these sectors; and stormwater control measures or best management practices, including source control and good housekeeping/pollution prevention measures for potential pollutant sources at facilities in the sector.

PHMSA – Hazardous Materials: Adjusting Registration and Fee Assessment Program

On September 22, 2022, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) published an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) to solicit feedback on potential adjustments to the hazardous materials registration and fee assessment program.

SUMMARY: PHMSA is publishing this ANPRM to solicit feedback on potential adjustments to the statutorily mandated hazardous materials registration and fee assessment program. Actions such as the potential adjustment of fees or the addition of other entities among those required to register may be necessary to fund PHMSA’s national emergency preparedness grant programs at the newly authorized level in accordance with the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021. To fully engage with stakeholders, this ANPRM solicits comments and input on questions related to the scope of the registration and fee assessment program. Any comments, data, and information received will be used to evaluate and draft proposed amendments.

ANPRM > https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2022-09-22/pdf/2022-20350.pdf

PHMSA Extension of Time to Comment

PHMSA published an extension to the comment period for the Request for Information (RFI) on Electronic Hazard Communication Alternatives published July 11, 2022. PHMSA has identified electronic “hazard communication” to include shipping papers, train consists, dangerous goods manifests, notifications to the pilot in command, and emergency response information. In addition, they are including any administrative documents such as Approvals, DOT Special Permits and registrations.

Comments are now due to the docket by October 24, 2022.

12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. (EDT)

REGISTER NOW

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance is more than an aspiration, and realizing it in real time is not easy. A well-designed ESG strategy can achieve meaningful improvements in corporate performance and provide real value to stakeholders through specific commitments to corporate responsibility. Any such approach, however, must be measurable, transparent, and accountable. Join experts from FTI Consulting, Christine DiBartolo and Ken Ditzel, and Lynn L. Bergeson, for a Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®) sponsored webinar, “Environmental, Social, and Governance Issues: A Business Imperative.”

Topics Covered:

  • Undertaking an ESG assessment — conducting an assessment of supply chain realities is key to a successful ESG program;
  • Building an effective ESG program — learning the essential elements and how to use them will help to implement a well-designed ESG program; and
  • Building credible sustainability reporting systems — developing data-driven systems capable of delivering credible ESG disclosures takes careful analysis and planning and must be communicated clearly and effectively.

IHMM GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS

Beltway Buzz – Ogletree Deakins

Lawmakers Avoid Shutdown, Extend Government Funding Deadline. The U.S. Congress narrowly averted a federal government shutdown this week, as it approved a stopgap continuing resolution to keep the government funded and running through December 16, 2022. President Joe Biden is expected to sign the short-term measure today before the midnight deadline of September 30, 2022, when government funding will expire. The logjam broke when legislators agreed not to include Senator Joe Manchin’s federal permit streamlining plan in the funding package. While this is good news for the moment, it also means that Congress will need to revisit the shutdown drama in mid-December. The last time Congress punted federal spending beyond the midterm elections was in 2018, at which time Congress failed to come to an agreement, and the federal government shut down for a record thirty-five days from December 22, 2018, until January 25, 2019. Just sayin’…

House Pandemic Proxy Practice Persists. Speaking of Congress, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) extended the practice of voting by proxy until November 10, 2022, due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Members of the U.S. House of Representatives have been permitted to vote remotely since March 2020, and the practice would have expired on September 26, 2022.

NLRB Revises Mail-Ballot Standard. In a decision released on September 29, 2022, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) revised its six-factor analysis that regional directors should use for determining when a representation election should be conducted by mail balloting, as opposed to in-person voting, due to COVID-19. In the decision, the Board amended the existing second factor to allow for mail-ballot elections when the risk of COVID-19 transmission in a particular community level is “high,” based on the latest U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention metric. (The previous second factor examined the fourteen-day trend of positive cases in the surrounding county.) Dissenting members Marvin Kaplan and John Ring criticized the majority’s failure to seek stakeholder input or expert opinion on the matter, as well as its failure to acknowledge the problems with mail-ballot voting. The dissent claimed that rather than “comprehensively explore both when it is or is not appropriate for Regional Directors to direct mail-ballot elections at this stage of the Covid pandemic,” the majority “simply substitut[ed] one imperfect basis for calculating voter risk with a different imperfect basis.”

IRAPs Scrapped. On September 26, 2022, the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Employment and Training Administration (ETA) finalized a rule rescinding the 2020 Industry-Recognized Apprenticeship Programs (IRAPs) regulation that implemented former president Donald Trump’s Executive Order (EO) 13801, Expanding Apprenticeships in America. According to a DOL announcement, “the department determined EO 13801 had created a duplicative, lower-quality system that was not in the best interest of workers and industries.” The final rule becomes effective November 25, 2022.

DOL IG Warns of Pandemic UI Fraud. A recent memo from the DOL’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) warns that the ETA paid out more than $45 billion in “potentially fraudulent unemployment insurance (UI) pandemic benefits” from March 2020 to April 2022. Worse, the memo states that despite the OIG’s previous suggestions for ways “to mitigate fraud and other improper payments to ineligible claimants, … ETA has not taken sufficient action to implement the[] recommendations.” The OIG implores the ETA to amend its regulations and guidance to ensure that state workforce agencies fully cooperate with audits, investigations, and oversight of the UI program to “prevent and detect fraud, waste, and abuse.”

OFCCP Revises FAAP Requirements. The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) recently revised its directive setting forth the process for contractors wishing to request, modify, or renew Functional Affirmative Action Program (FAAP) agreements. In addition to permitting establishment-based affirmative action programs (AAPs), OFCCP also allows AAPs organized around contractors’ functional or business units, such as sales departments that span multiple establishments in different geographic areas. According to OFCCP’s announcement, “[t]he revised Directive provides clarification regarding procedural requirements, in addition to minor language and formatting changes.” The directive is effective as of September 21, 2022.
