What are the benefits of EPA's Performance Based Measurement System (PBMS)?

What are the benefits of PBMS?


The PBMS approach would provide many benefits to both regulators and the regulated community, including:

  • Flexibility in method selection.
  • Expedited approval of new and emerging technologies to meet mandated monitoring requirements.
  • Development and use of cost-effective methods that meet program requirements and their associated performance criteria.
  • Where PBMS is implemented, the regulated community will be able to select an appropriate analytical method for use in complying with the RCRA regulations, including a method not found in EPA-published manuals that is cost-effective and meets the particular project criteria.
