Global Named First

Approved Spill Contractor

In State Of Washington

Global Environmental recently received notice from the Washing- ton State Department of Ecology that the company was entered on the list of state-approved primary oil-spill response contractors.

Under newly adopted legislation codified in WAC 173-181, private contractors wishing designation on oil-spill contingency plans as the primary responder must be certified by the state. A formal evaluation of the contractor's compliance with all statutory and regulatory require- ments is initiated before approval status is granted.

Global Environmental is the first company to acquire approved status from the State of Washington.
