A Transaction Screen Assessment (TSA), offers the User a limited environmental due diligence process (less than a Phase I ESA) to assist in identifying Potential Environmental Concerns (PEC's) in connection with a Property. The TSA is typically used for low risk environmental due diligence where a Phase I ESA is, initially deemed to be unnecessary by the User and the parties involved do not seek Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), Landowner Liability Protections (LLPs). If the driving force behind the environmental due diligence is a desire to qualify for one of the CERCLA LLPs, this practice should not be applied. Instead, the most current ASTM E 1527 Standard for Environmental Site Assessments—Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process—should be used.
Trileaf conducts TSA's that meet the requirements of the most current ASTM Standard Practice E 1528. The TSA includes:
- site reconnaissance
- key personnel interviews/questionnaire
- regulatory records review
- limited historical research
- preparation of final report
