Khalil Porter, Environmental Scientist at North Carolina's Electric Cooperatives says, "My firm relies on Bloomberg Environment’s Environment & Safety Resource Center to keep up to date with regulatory citations. Using the product has increased productivity and compliance accuracy due to the fact that the regulations are a click away. We have incorporated links to the specific regulation into our SharePoint compliance site for internal use."
