Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to prove a taming theorem for a codimension one manifold that is locally flat at some point and has 1-ULC complement. We also prove that any two sufficiently close locally flat embeddings of a codimension one manifold are ambient isotopic. Since this paper was first submitted, R. Daverman has shown that, given any point on a codimension one manifold with 1-ULC complement, some neighborhood of that point lies on a codimension one sphere that is locally flat at some points and has 1-ULC complement. Hence the two papers combined prove that a codimension one manifold is locally flat if and only if its complement is 1-ULC.
