Compliance Assessment and Programs
Achieving and maintaining compliance with environmental regulations is often a daunting task for many businesses. Regulations can be very complex and difficult to understand. Often times business owners and managers are unaware that their operations are covered by a particular regulation. Even businesses with an established compliance program often benefit from a “second set of eyes” review from an experienced auditor. Compliance requires a commitment of resources; however, the costs of non-compliance can be much greater. For those who are not properly prepared, visits from a regulator agency, external audits conducted by a customer , or even internal audit conducted under a corporate compliance program can be stressful and in some cases can lead to serious impacts to your operations.
JAS Environmental can help. We can provide a confidential review of existing operations and/or planned expansions to assess compliance – ranging from an informal assessment to identify any major compliance needs, to conducting rigorous and detailed audits of existing operations and/or assessments of future compliance needs. We can also perform assessments as part of due diligence prior to purchase of a business.
Written compliance programs can be developed specific to your facility, including compliance calendars which detail
regular tasks required by regulation or permit such as inspections, record-keeping and data gathering, reports and submittals, as well as standardized procedures detailing the proper execution of these tasks. Personnel training specific to compliance-related tasks can also be provided.
JAS Environmental can provide assistance with regulatory inspections, post-inspection requests, and response to notices of violations, compliance plans and technical assistance with developing compliance agreements.
