Investigating Child Care Centers & Educational Facilities in NJ: An Environmental Professionals Obligation to Assist in License Application, Renewal & Compliance
Environmental hazards are arguably of highest concern in buildings and facilities that our loved ones spend time in, especially for our youngest population who are still developing and most vulnerable to environmental pollutants. Since 2007, the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has enforced legislation called “The Madden Law” (P.L. 2007 c.1) that puts higher restrictions on child care center licensing, and any building or site being used for child care or education purposes is subject to these regulations. In a nut shell, child care centers must receive a Final Remediation Document (i.e. Response Action Outcome) at the minimum before the Department of Children and Families (DCF) Office of Licensing will approve an application to operate a new child care center.
