ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE

environmental-compliance
Depending on the size and sector within which your business operates, it is likely that you will require specific licences or permits. We can advise you on your company’s environmental compliance obligations and guide you through what can often be a complex process.
Below are some of the key areas in which we can help your business improve its environmental performance.

PPC Applications (Pollution Prevention and Control)

We compile environmental permit applications for companies whose processes require PPC authorisation. This means that the customer is able to continue operating legally. During the application process, we are the liaison between the customer and the regulator (SEPA or EA). It is an involved procedure and passing the responsibility to us ensures timely submissions and avoids the need for the Operator to be tied down over an extended period.

License exemptions

If output is below a given threshold or it only involves certain materials, we can apply for an exemption from licensing for you for a certain prescribed activities. Holding exemptions allows you to carry on with the activity and remain in compliance.

Environmental Management System (EMS)

An EMS is now an essential part of many companies’ procedures and is often required by customers when you submit a bid. We can compile a system for you either to ISO 14001 for larger organisations or something less comprehensive to meet the needs of the majority of organisations. You will benefit by having a demonstrable system if procedures which increases your company credibility and your chances of success when bidding.

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)

We can advise on all aspects of the EIA procedures, from initial definition and scoping with the local councils through to compiling and submitting the assessment, sometimes with assistance from specialist sub-contractors. It is a prescriptive process and our customers have welcomes our understanding of the key points and the guidance which we can give, as it is not a process they regularly have to address.
