Environmental Compliance Consulting and Environmental Audit Services
The key to understanding issues of environmental compliance begins with understanding applicable environmental regulation.
For site owners in Ontario, the applicable environmental regulation is Ontario Regulation 153/04 (amended 269/11) which prescribes the appropriate ways to manage environmental compliance and due diligence.
While every case is different and depends on a variety of factors, a primary area of compliance is ensuring that contamination is not moving off your site onto a neighbouring site, and is not present in the groundwater. These are areas of high liability for site owners, as they can pose a risk to neighbouring sites or occupants.
Other areas of compliance include required reporting or testing, site assessment or clean-up, changes to activities carried out on site, and more.
AEL is able to provide guidance in all areas of environmental compliance for individuals and companies who own sites in Ontario and beyond. This may include:
- Identifying the compliance requirements that apply to you
- Assessing your risk level
- Helping you to manage requirements, deadlines, and ongoing monitoring, or assisting you in response to audits
