EPA Communication Product Standards: Stylebook

This stylebook is intended to help EPA staff prepare and review Agency communications. Our main focus is to guide the style, format and presentation of EPA’s content and communications. The EPA Stylebook provides guidance for most media, including print documents, audiovisual, broadcast, presentation and exhibit work. 

The 2009 EPA Stylebook and the Stylebook Index are available for download below.
