What to expect
Environmental legal registers produced by our environmental consultants will include a summary of all regulatory requirements and guidance documents, remarks on the requirements placed on your business, the associated regulator and a summary of control measures that are in place to ensure compliance. The legal register will include regulatory categories such as waste management, energy management, statutory nuisance and hazardous substances.
All our environmental consultants have extensive knowledge of various industry sectors and established relationships with regulatory bodies, providing assurance that the advice and guidance you receive is informed and up to date. By utilising our team of experts, your business will experience numerous benefits:
- Maintaining environmental legal compliance and keeping an up-to-date legal register – What is environmental compliance and why is it so important?
- Compliance with Clauses 6.1.3 and 9.1.2 of ISO 14001:2015 (where an accredited Environmental Management System is in place)
- Consistent guidance and support from a dedicated environmental consultant with further access to the EMS Advisory Team
- Continuous environmental improvement and proactive environmental management leading to potential cost savings due to increases in efficiencies
- Knowledge and insight into industry best practice and environmental events (webinars, seminars, expos, etc.)
As practicing environmental consultants, we understand that it is not a one size fits all when it comes to maintaining compliance as each business will have different requirements. In order to ensure we are meeting the needs of your business, we have aimed to make this service as flexible as possible. Therefore, if you think this service would better suit your business with one or two adjustments let us know. For example, some of our existing customers utilise the time allotted to the snapshot environmental audit as extra consultancy support time to help develop their Environmental Management System or close-out actions from their own internal environmental audits.
