Legal Compliance Audit - Phillips Business Solutions
Phillips Business Solutions is an independent office products and business services company, which supplies to a range of clients country-wide. They operate an environmental management system (EMS) certified to ISO 14001, a key part of which is understanding applicable environmental legislation and ensuring compliance.
Specialist assistance was sought from Newground to provide legal compliance work to enable the Company to confidently identify and assess compliance with relevant legislation.
The first step was for Newground to visit the site to determine what legislation applied to the Company’s activities. From this, and using Newground’s online Legislation Update Service, an environmental legal register was constructed and then a legal compliance evaluation was carried out to determine the Company’s current compliance status.
Newground’s assistance helped the Company in identifying all areas of environmental law it had responsibility for complying with, assessing compliance, understanding required actions, and demonstrating legal conformity to the management system. Newground continues to carry out regular legal compliance audits to help ensure compliance is maintained.
