Can be used to restrict the list of enforcement actions to either judicial or administrative cases. The default search includes both categories.
Used to select actions which contain a specified name in the Case Name or Defendant Name fields when used with the corresponding check boxes.
Note: The results screen does not contain the name of the violating facility or defendants/respondents that may have been used as a selection criterion. Consequently, if a name was used as one of the criteria and the Facility or Defendant boxes were checked, that name may not appear in the Case Name results column. Users should assume that if the name specified is not contained as the Case Name that it is the facility name or a defendant. If a name is specified which contains two or more words (e.g., Tire and Rubber), ECHO results may contain any of the words. If the name contains only one word (e.g., Rubber), ECHO will search for an exact match.
