Certified Environmental Manager (CEM)

Nevada's Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) requires CEM certification of any consultant that provides:

  • The management of hazardous waste;
  • The investigation of a site to determine the release or potential release of a hazardous substance;
  • The sampling of air, soil, surface water or groundwater to determine the release of a hazardous substance;
  • The response to a release of a hazardous substance;
  • The cleanup of a release of a hazardous substance; or
  • The remediation of water or soil contaminated by a hazardous substance.

Only a CEM can perform a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment in Nevada. Nevada CEM certification requires an application approval process, which considers examination scores, education, experience, and criminal background. To learn more about the CEM certification program and process in Nevada, please visit the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection website.
