Specialty Technical Publishers and AECOM Publish Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) Audit Protocols for Germany and the Netherlands

North Vancouver, B.C., Canada (PRWEB) July 16, 2014

Specialty Technical Publishers (STP) and AECOM announce the availability of the newly updated International Audit Protocol Consortium (IAPC) EHS audit protocols for Germany and the Netherlands. Leading companies around the world use IAPC EHS audit protocols to understand the scope of their EHS regulatory obligations and rapidly collect, share, archive, and export audit findings in a cost-effective manner.

IAPC EHS Audit Protocols are prepared by AECOM in partnership with STP and focus on those national (plus, in some cases, regional or provincial) EHS requirements that have site-specific application for manufacturing operations. With a leading global EHS management consulting practice, AECOM has in-depth knowledge of local/regional EHS requirements and a worldwide technical expertise network.

STP and AECOM maintain leading-edge EHS audit protocols for more than 30 jurisdictions. The protocol documents are written in English and are available on CD-ROM in MS Word, Adobe Acrobat and Excel formats, as well as through STP’s web-based portal or can be integrated into an existing company platform. Using the protocols’ custom templates and advanced functionality features, auditors can easily track audit findings and manage data over time to improve compliance, risk performance and safety management. In addition, STP’s formatting is compatible with leading risk management and sustainability platform providers.

Highlights of selected legislation covered in the newly updated protocols include:


  •     The "Federal Immission Control Act (BImSchG)" and a number of Ordinances issued under the Act were substantially revised or reissued, to incorporate requirements of the European Union "Industrial Emissions Directive (Directive 2010/75/EU)" among other changes.
  •     The framework "Waste Management Act" was reissued to incorporate requirements relating to electronic manifesting and to promote more recycling and reuse of wastes.
  •     The "Ordinance on Domestic and International Transportation of Dangerous Goods by Road, Railroad and Inland Waterways (Gefahrgutverordnung Straße, Eisenbahn und Binnenschifffahrt – GGVSEB)" (formerly entitled the "Dangerous Goods Ordinance on Transport by Road, Rail and Inland Waterways") was substantially revised, including changes to the consignor, carrier and loader requirements.
  •     Revisions to the "Hazardous Substances Ordinance (GefahrStoffverordnung – GefStoffV)", the repeal of the "Technical Rule for Flammable Liquids (TRbF 20)" and the issuance of the new "TRGS 510 – Storage of Hazardous Substances in Portable Containers", have significantly changed the requirements relating to storage and handling of hazardous substances.

The Netherlands
Significant changes to Dutch legislation were made to cover the implementation of "Directive 2010/75/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 November 2010 on Industrial Emissions (a.k.a., the Industrial Emissions Directive)". These changes include:

  •     The repeal of the "Decree on Emission-Requirements Medium-Sized Heating Installations", the "Decree on Incineration of Waste", and the "Decree on Solvents Implementing Council Directive 1999/13/EEC".
  •     Amendments to the "Environmental Activities Decree", including the incorporation of replacement air emission requirements for combustion, incineration and solvent installations.
  •     Amendments to the "Decree on Greenhouse Gas Emission Allowance Trading", which include the termination of the Dutch nitrogen oxides trading scheme.

The Netherlands revised its scheme on radiation protection for workers, including amendments to the "Decree on Radiation Protection", the issuance of the "Regulation on Radiation Workers 2014" and the "Executing Regulation on Radiation Protection", and the repeal of three other Decisions.
