  AR 200-1 PDF

The AR 200-1 implements Federal, State, and local environmental laws and DOD policies for preserving, protecting, conserving, and restoring the quality of the environment. This regulation should be used in conjunction with 32 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 651 (32 CFR 651), which provides Army policy on National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA, 42 USC 4321–4347) requirements, and supplemental program guidance, which the proponent of this regulation may issue as needed to assure that programs remain current.

The AR 200-1 defines the framework for the Army Environmental Management System (EMS). All appropriate facilities were to have implemented a mission focused EMS by the end of calendar year (CY) 05, and must attain International Organization for Standardization standard 14001 (ISO 14001) conformance by the end of FY09. The Army EMS Commanders Guide, Army EMS Implementer’s Guide, and Army EMS Aspects and Impact Methodology for Army Training Ranges provide detailed implementation guidance.
