Environmental Management and Monitoring Plan

Environmental Management and Monitoring Plan auditing and continual compliance

The EMS section of the EMMP certified by SGS as compliant with ISO14001 with ongoing SGS audits undertaken every 6 months. This audit process is necessary to:
  •  ensure that MRC continues to comply with its internal procedures;
  • ensure the ongoing compliance of MRC’s environmental management system (EMS) with the ISO14001 standard;
  • assess the effectiveness of the environmental system in providing improved management, Statutory compliance and performance;
  • identify additional areas of risk improvement opportunities; and
  • provide the organisation with feedback to facilitate ongoing development and implementation of their management system.

 

Particular MRC environmental management strengths identified during a recent SGS audit included:
  • regulatory compliance audits;
  • environmental awareness/induction process;
  • employee and contractor awareness of environmental aspects/impacts, etc;
  • chemicals (separation of dangerous goods);
  • management of cultural heritage areas;
  • management of dieback affected areas; and
