Welcome to the U.S. Navy's At-Sea Environmental Compliance information and download page.

Environmental Planning/Compliance Documents

The Navy has finalized a number of environmental documents that analyzed training and testing on Navy at-sea ranges and in open ocean areas.  In conjunction with release of the Navy's Final Environmental Impact Statements/Overseas Environmental Impact Statements (EISs/OEISs) and the associated Records of Decision (RODs), the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and the Unites States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) issue Final Rules and Letters of Authorization (LOAs) under the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), and Biological Opinions (BOs) or Letters of Concurrence under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The Navy's RODs, Final Rules, LOAs, BOs and Concurrence Letters outline requirements that the Navy must satisfy in order to remain in compliance with environmental laws and regulations.The compliance documents available for dowload below are organized by the Atlantic and Pacific Area of Responsibilities (AORs).

Navy Integrated Comprehensive Monitoring Program (ICMP)

The Navy is developing a coordinated monitoring program to address marine mammal monitoring requirements associated with activities at sea.  A description of this Integrated Comprehensive Monitoring Program (ICMP) can be downloaded here:

U.S. Navy's Afloat Environmental Compliance Training

The Navy has developed the U.S. Navy Afloat Environmental Compliance Training Series to help ensure Navy-wide compliance with environmental requirements, and to help personnel gain a better understanding of their personal roles and responsibilities. The series contains four interactive modules, which will be housed on Navy e-Learning starting in late Spring 2014 as the preferred method of training. The Navy is making video versions of these modules available online in the interim on the Protective Measures Assessment Protocol website at https://eims.sscno.nmci.navy.mil/PMAP/. Personnel are required to complete all modules identified in their career path training plan.

For more information on each of the four modules, please visit the U.S. Navy Afloat Environmental Compliance Training website at: https://www.navfac.navy.mil/products_and_services/ev/products_and_services/marine_resources/afloat_training.html.
