ESATCO provides Environmental Compliance Audits for Effective Business Risk Management and Compliance.

How do Environmental Compliance Audits (ECA) help you reduce risks?

Environmental compliance audits identify issues with regulatory compliance, environmental issues, emissions to atmosphere, waste discharges, spill controls etc., all of which must be controlled.

The scope of the ECA was defined in the provision of services and the objectives of the ECA were to:

  • Check the conformity of activities and facilities under the laws (federal, provincial and municipal) applicable, environmental issues, environmental compliance approvals (ECA/CofA) and permits issued to your firm by different government bodies.
  • Make recommendations for best management practices where applicable.
