Definition - What does Facility Identification mean?
Facility Identification is a process managed by Facility Registry Services (FRS), a division of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The FRS maintains a database that records the sites, facilities, and other areas that are environmentally protected or of environmental interest, and / or subject to environmental protection. The FRS collects a range of data from national and state records in order to provide an authoritative source of information.
Safeopedia explains Facility Identification
Facility Identification is a very valuable central authoritative information source for anyone who is searching for data regarding a site, facility or location. The FRS Identification process removes the burden at a state level to keep onerous records. It also ensures that there is a lower error rate in recording of information. It also opens up the information stored by the EPA more readily to public scrutiny.
