According to the Northeast Diesel Collaborative, the most important elements to consider when adopting clean diesel construction specifications are to:
- Communicate and educate your contractors early on and throughout the project
- Develop clear contract specifications
- Establish viable inspection and reporting provisions to ensure accountability
The Northeast Diesel Collaborative published the Best Practices for Clean Diesel Construction: Successful Implementation for Equipment Specification to Minimize Diesel Pollution, a comprehensive guide that provides recommendations for successful implementation of specifications to minimize diesel pollution and exposure during construction in 2012. In addition, the NEDC developed a Model Contract Specifications Template in 2010.
