Environmental Compliance means conforming to environmental laws, regulations, standards and other requirements such as site permits to operate. In recent years, environmental concerns have led to a significant increase in the number and scope of compliance imperatives across all global regulatory environments. Being closely related, environmental concerns and compliance activities are increasingly being aligned with corporate performance goals and being integrated to some extent to avoid conflicts, wasteful overlaps, and gaps.
Compliance with the above requirements and obligations, requires meeting certain conditions. Typically, these include:
• Managing monitoring programmes or schedules, ensuring that the monitoring required in the permit has been done, at the correct locations, for the correct parameters, and at the correct frequency.
• Pre-processing, performing calculations and validating the data for compliance with any alert or reporting levels.
• Generating routine compliance reports for authorities.
Environmental protection is a spectrum of practices for preserving natural environment on individual, organization controlled or governmental levels, for the benefit of both the environment and humans. Due to the commercial activities, either operational or accidental, environment is being degraded, sometimes permanently. This has been recognized so, globally, there have been set rules, guidelines, practices & recommendations, creating a regulatory regime on activities and incidents that cause environmental degradation.
