meet all the entities which meet all the nine policy requirements. According to the group and our opinion, economic benefit component offers the best penalty to the non-compliance of the policy, because it reflects the non-compliance behavior. The intensity of the penalty will be dependent of their level of diversion from the set EPA policy requirements. Therefore one non-compliant party which violates the policy above the gravity based component penalty will not be accessed as the one who violates the policy far below the gravity based component penalties. This method of punishing the non-compliant shows rationality in handling policy based rules. 4. There are some condition where the EPA eliminates the penalties on the business which violates the policy requirement. Conditions: System discovery of the violation through an environmental audit or the compliance management system, voluntary discovery, prompt disclosure, discovery and disclosure, correction and remediation, prevent recurrence, no repeat violation, their violation excluded and Cooperation When the business does a prompt discovery of the violation of the EPA policy, they will quality for the elimination of the penalty if they report the discovery before a period of 21 day. If they think they cannot meet the deadline then they should contact the EPA office to disclose the advance terms agreed by EPA. A time there is an extension of the disclosure time when some factors like: when multiple facilities or acquisition are involved or when EPA identifies that, the

LAW ETHICS 7 violation could not be traced and reported before 21 days expire. Under the policy the entity or the business must correct the violation with 60 calendar days from the date the discovery was recorded or expeditiously as possible. They realized correction of some violation take time than other depending on finances and technological issues involved therefore the entity involved should communicate the case. The group think the practices endorsed are good to mitigate the problem in environmental and health protection. Because they allow the entity involved to take or assume their role since the condition and consequences regarding the violation of the EPA are clear. It will also allow earlier communication with the EPA office so that if the entity cannot handle the situation then the government can probably take charge and sort the violation in time. The number of days are ideal for discovery and report to me done to the EPA agency, putting in place some consideration that may arise due to human right protection and long term environmental hazards that may arise if the violation is not checked on time. 5. In relation to business and ethics, we learn that the economic benefit in this context is earned through the behavior of the non-compliant entity to uphold cooperation with the agency giving the penalty. This happen when the violator maintains their place in the economy and hence does not gain their competitive advantage of the economy over the entities which comply the regulation and the policy requirements. EPA sometime forgives the penalty since they think it has an insignificant advantage on the economy.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
