More of a specialized function

Good post, Rob, and it raises a lot of issues. I'm actually reporting a story as we speak on some of the tools used to help facilitate compliance initiatives and most of the engineers/experts I'm talking to are echoing Ken's sentiments that the administrative burden of environmental compliance should not fall on the design engineer's plate. Rather, it should  be the domain of an operations person or if that resource is lacking, be outsourced to a specialized consulting firm. The argument: That tracking down the increasingly complex details and paperwork that goes with this is a distraction for design engineers and takes them away from their core competency--designing good products. I'll be curious to hear others wade in.
