FalconRE Group is very excited to announce that Chemmie Sokolic has been approved as an ASTM International-certified instructor, and will be providing ASTM-approved classes regarding the ASTM E1527 and E2247 Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (Phase I ESA) standards, the ASTM E1903 Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (Phase II ESA) standard, and the E1528 Transaction Screen Process standard.

Chemmie joins an elite team of only eight other ASTM experts who provide these classes throughout the country. All ASTM-certified instructors are experienced professionals who are members of ASTM Committee E50.02 on Environmental Assessments, and are actively involved in developing and updating the ASTM environmental assessment standards.

Originally founded in 1898, and formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials until its name changed in 2001, ASTM International is a globally recognized leader in the development and delivery of voluntary consensus standards. Currently, over 12,000 ASTM standards are used around the world to improve product quality, enhance health and safety, strengthen market access and trade, and build consumer confidence. ASTM standards have grown to be among the world's most widely used and accepted documents.

By the end of these ASTM-approved courses you will be able to:

  • Recall why the ASTM Environmental Site Assessment Standard Practices for the Phase I Site Assessment and the Transaction Screen Process (E1527 and E1528) were developed;

  • Describe how standards are used;

  • Interpret how standards affect the way you do business;

  • Discuss the "Landowner Liability Protections" under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), and why due diligence is necessary;

  • Discuss changes to E1527;

  • Recall how to properly plan and perform Phase II investigations using ASTM E1903 Standard Guide for Phase II Environmental Site Assessments; and

  • Discuss various approaches used in the Phase II process to generate additional information regarding the identification and nature of potential contaminants associated with recognized environmental conditions (RECs) identified during the Phase I ESA process, and to assist in making informed business decisions concerning commercial real estate transactions.

These courses are often attended by:

  • Environmental professionals

  • Appraisers

  • Commercial Real Estate Professionals

  • Property owners

  • Commercial lenders and financial managers

  • Attorneys

  • Anyone responsible for reviewing Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessment reports
