The Retail Compliance Center Enforcement Reports summarize retail-specific state environmental enforcement actions such as warning letters, notices of violations, consent orders and penalties for selected states.

Data is obtained from state environmental regulatory agencies through direct correspondence, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, and online databases. The search is refined using retail-specific criteria, such as titles and address locations of the entities, and Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) or North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes. Reports do not include enforcement actions involving non-retailers. Each state has different recordkeeping, violation definitions, and therefore report content for states varies and in some cases, may be incomplete.
