Environmental Compliance Auditing

Meverden Environmental has extensive auditing experience. Our staff has conducted over 200 compliance audits of health care and industrial facilities, including manufacturers of plastic parts, lead-acid batteries, coil springs, automotive drive trains, brass musical instruments, HVAC equipment, friction products and consumer and industrial chemicals. Our audits may be comprehensive or targeted toward one or more environmental media. Our audits can help you:

  • Establish a compliance baseline
  • Develop compliance strategies
  • Meet ISO 14001 requirements
  • Provide a complete, detailed and accurate snapshot of a facility's compliance status

 

   "We've just finished reviewing the Environmental Audit and it looks great! We have only one suggestion: On Recommendation No. 4, rather than 'should investigate further,' we want to say, 'should NOT investigate further.' Can you live with that?"
