Associated General Contractors of America has teamed up with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to upgrade a website designed to help contractors comply with environmental regulations.

The goal is for the site to be improved to make it easier for construction contractors to learn how to comply with federal and state environmental guidelines. AGC, EPA, and the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) will make improvements to the Construction Industry Compliance Assistance website, also called CICA Center.

As part of the partnership, the construction association will help finance upgrades to the website, originally launched in the mid-2000s with AGC's assistance, designed to make it easier for contractors to comply with environmental regulations governing construction projects.

NCMS will continue as a managing partner for the new website, which can be found at http://www.cicacenter.org. EPA program office staff will also continue to review and contribute to the site. The construction association will provide relevant updates as well, and secure advertising revenue that will finance the continuous upgrades to the site and content. The new site launched January 22.
