In Puerto Rico and across the Caribbean, the leading provider of environmental site assessments is Zimmetry Environmental.

When a property transaction takes place, the buyer acquires any potential environmental problems that are associated with the purchase. To help prevent any surprises, buyers and investors will often request a Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (Phase I ESA).
A Phase I ESA is a non-invasive study to help determine the environmental conditions of a commercial or industrial property during transfer of ownership or refinancing.  It is generally considered the first step in the process of environmental due diligence. A Phase II ESA may then be conducted if the Phase I ESA identified potential contamination. Phase II ESAs include sampling and laboratory analysis to confirm the presence of hazardous materials.
Standards for a Phase I ESA have been established by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) to address the “All‐Appropriate‐Inquiry” (AAI) aspect to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA). CERCLA contains national policy and procedures for containing or removing hazardous substances that have been released, and also provides funding and guidance for cleaning up some abandoned and contaminated hazardous waste sites.
In Puerto Rico and across the Caribbean, the leading provider of environmental site assessments is Zimmetry Environmental. Their Phase I ESA includes:
            •           Physical inspection of the property
            •           Interviews of knowledgeable persons
            •           Review of federal, state and local lists of known contaminated sites,                                   hazardous materials users, spills and storage tanks
            •           Evaluation of the potential effects of adjacent properties
            •           Property history searches at applicable register of deeds offices
            •           Review of existing environmental documents for the property
