WILLIAMSPORT, PA (Jan. 24, 2013) — RegScan, Inc. is proud to announce that it has received an Environmental Business Journal Business Achievement Award for Technology Merit. It is the second time in as many years, and the third time in four years, that RegScan has been honored.
Award winners were announced earlier this month. RegScan was honored for Information Technology achievement for its expansion of the IPAA Environmental Compliance System, a joint venture with the Independent Petroleum Association of America.
What was first launched in October 2011 as a Pennsylvania-specific product has now been expanded into a complete line of suites covering 10 states in every major U.S. shale play. National coverage includes modules for the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The EPA Module was first announced in June 2012, in response to the approval of the first-ever National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) that specifically targeted the natural gas industry. Within a month it was integrated into all of the existing suites. RegScan also made the EPA module available as a stand-alone product to augment coverage in jurisdictions where comprehensive state suites were not available.
“I am extremely grateful that a respected resource like the Environmental Business Journal has again honored RegScan with this award,” said Ned Ertel, President and C.E.O. “Our innovative technology sets us apart from our competitors, and our partners at IPAA have the expertise to ensure we’re providing one of the most unique and complete regulatory guides on the market.”
The IPAA Environmental Compliance System is a one-of-a-kind online regulatory compliance tracking system for oil and gas operators. The product is based on RegScan’s Socrates Project and Task Management technology, and it chronologically outlines all the regulatory requirements for oil and gas development.
The system is fully integrated with the RegScan GCS 2.0 research databases, which contain volumes of state and federal regulations. The databases are continuously updated, so the most current information is always available.
Founded in 1987, RegScan, Inc. provides regulatory compliance services to companies worldwide. RegScan has unique online tools for easy access to – and interpretations of – regulatory data. RegScan GCS 2.0 provides the regulatory information, while the Socrates compliance management system gives you the tools to manage the process.
