Historical Recognized Environmental Condition- HREC

A Historical Recognized Environmental Condition is defined by ASTM as “an environmental condition which in the past would have been considered a recognized environmental condition, but which may or may not be considered a recognized environmental condition currently.” The determination of whether an environmental condition is a recognized environmental condition (REC) or a historical recognized environmental condition (HREC) lies with the environmental professional, and depends upon how the condition impacts the current or future use of the property. A release that was remediated and given regulatory closure may be considered an HREC unless it is determined to have a significant current or future impact on the property, at which point the environmental professional may deem it a REC.
