HQTS provides comprehensive environmental audit services that conforms to the ISO 14001 standard which outlines performance evaluation guidelines for environmental management systems.
A common misconception is that ISO 14001 certification automatically implies legal compliance. Certification under ISO 14001 does not directly reflect compliance with any legal requirements, although ISO 14001 demands the organization to evaluate its compliance with legal requirements.
Our Environmental Audit assesses whether management and operational practices are in compliance with local laws and regulations, as well as international standards for environmental protection based on ISO 14000 standards.
Some of the major items include:
- Risk assessment
- Legal requirements
- Management systems
- Hazardous wastes
- Energy use, water use, CO² emissions
HQTS is pleased to announce we will exhibit at Tool Japan. We invite you to drop by and learn more about how HQTS can help you meet your quality assurance goals. Details to follow at our booth 17-36.
