Apr 23, 2024

BURLINGTON (April 23, 2024) – EBI Consulting, a trusted leader in environmental, sustainability, engineering, and health and safety services for the commercial real estate industry, announced the launch of its groundbreaking “U.S. Commercial Real Estate and Telecom Regulation Bulletin.” The quarterly bulletin provides industry stakeholders with insights, updates, commentary, and analysis on the increasingly complex regulatory and compliance environment in the commercial real estate sector.

The U.S. Commercial Real Estate and Telecom Regulation Bulletin covers a diverse range of topics including energy performance requirements, emerging standards and regulations, updates related to environmental and climate guidelines, as well as guidance from regulatory bodies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

“The regulatory and compliance environment has become progressively more complex and specialized, and while there were no notable new telecoms regulations or updates announced in Q1, that growing complexity is a trend that’s set to continue,” said Nolan Previte, President and CEO of EBI Consulting. “The challenge for stakeholders in the industry is keeping up to date and informed on these continuing changes. That is why we have launched the first quarterly commercial real estate (CRE) and telecom regulation bulletin for the United States, with essential insights and commentary so investors, lenders, owners, leaseholders, developers, contractors, and property and compliance managers stay up to date on the implications and requirements those changes will have on their assets.”

Leveraging a network of over 1000 experts nationwide and over 35 years of experience in commercial real estate, the inaugural issue of the bulletin includes key takeaways and impact analyses of major developments in the U.S. commercial real estate and telecoms regulatory and compliance landscape that will have the greatest impact on stakeholders across the industry. Each issue succinctly covers the scope, date and overview of a new or updated regulation, who is impacted by the regulation, and outlines key takeaways and impacts, including energy performance requirements, new and emerging standards and regulations, and the latest updates on relevant environmental and climate-related guidelines.
