The Network Technology Board is excited to announce the release of the new Institutional Controls (IC) Data Exchange. Institutional controls are non-engineered instruments, such as administrative and legal controls, that help minimize the potential for human exposure to contamination and protect the integrity of a remedial action. ICs can reduce exposure to contamination by limiting land or resource use and guide human behavior at a site. Many Partners inventory ICs and some provide public-facing displays of these data.
In 2013, an Integrated Project Team led by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, the EN Coordinator, and the Environmental Council of the States developed the implementation resources necessary to allow Partners to publish IC data via the Exchange Network using a standardized data format. The IC Data Exchange provides both Query and Solicit services. No data processing services are required. The data publishing services will support both REST and SOAP service requests.
