Caltha LLP Project Summary
Project: Update and Maintenance of Legal and Other Requirements Listing
Client: International Steel Manufacturer
Key Elements: Review of regulatory requirements, preparation of ISO 14001 documentation of legal and other requirements
Overview: Caltha was contracted by the client to provide technical support to maintain their listing of “Legal and Other Requirements” which was prepared to conform to ISO 14001 Clause 4.3.2. An environmental management system that conforms to ISO 14001 must include a procedure to identify legal and other requirements that the organization believes are applicable to its operations. The organization also needs to have a system to be able to access the current version of these requirements.
The list of requirements is also essential for complying with other Clauses of the standard. This list becomes the scope of scheduled compliance audits the organization must perform. Caltha provided a technical update to the organization’s existing listing of requirements, which included several new regulations that had been recently promulgated on both the Federal and State level.
The most recent update included important changes to the hazardous waste management requirements and Pennsylvania stormwater permit requirements, included in:
- Hazardous Waste Generators Improvement Rule,
- Solvent Contaminated Wipe Management Rule,
- 2016 Revised PDEP Industrial Stormwater Requirements.
