This Roadmap provides Deloitte’s insights into and interpretations of the accounting guidance on environmental obligations in ASC 410-30 and asset retirement obligations (AROs) in ASC 410-20. Because the accounting for environmental obligations and AROs will vary depending on the laws and regulations governing such obligations, this publication provides an overview of some of the applicable federal and state environmental laws and regulations in the United States and describes the application of the accounting guidance within the relevant legal framework. Appendix C of the Roadmap summarizes the key changes made in the 2019 edition.
