Environmental Compliance

An environmental compliance assessment review can help ensure that you're in compliance with all applicable environmental rules and regulations-including new rules you may not even be aware of. Environmental compliance requires broad-based knowledge of environmental regulations and liabilities as well as a detailed understanding of the operations, limitations and management structure of the client's organization.

MLM and Associates Engineering (MLM) believes this approach to compliance services provides the best pathway to developing an environmental management program built specifically to meet our clients’ goals and objectives.

To minimize your liability in environmental compliance situations, you must keep abreast of the myriad of laws, rules, and regulations, as well as the inevitable revisions and interpretations. In short, you must understand the law and regularly review your compliance status. It's simply good business. In fact, some companies who have effective environmental auditing programs in place have been granted protection from fines and criminal penalties.

MLM can provide a trained, experienced staff of environmental professionals to review and analyze your environmental procedures and to develop a strategy for environmental compliance.

An MLM review is designed to:

  • Establish performance baselines
