Form Reminder
  • Must use exact wording in 40 CFR 280, Subpart H except for substituting or adding “aboveground” where applicable.
  • Copy of the signed insurance policy or risk retention group policy and any amendments must be kept with the insurance or endorsement certificate
  • The ACORD Form does not use the 40 CFR wording, and therefore it is not acceptable proof of financial responsibility (FR).
  • Coverage needs to be continuous with no gaps.
