The United States Environmental Protection Agency's Environmental Financial Advisory Board (EFAB) will hold an open meeting of its Preventing Future Non-Funded Abandoned Sites Project Workgroup.

EFAB is chartered with providing analysis and advice to the EPA Administrator and program offices on issues relating to environmental finance. The purpose of this meeting is for the EFAB to collect information and ideas with respect to a number of important financial assurance topics. The first day of the workshop will examine the financial test for self-insurance and corporate guarantees, corporate sibling guarantees, and disclosure issues. The second day will focus on a number of insurance issues, including the strengths and pitfalls of insurance, insurer ratings and capitalization requirements, and captive insurance. Each day will be structured to address the issues via a series of panel discussions involving experts from federal and state governments; finance, banking, and accounting firms; insurance companies and brokers; business and industry; the legal community; and environmental organizations.
