  • Highlighting the environmental responsibilities of licence holders regarding waste management facilities, and encouraging the preservation of the environment for future generations
  • >Providing for improved compliance with waste management facility licences and raising the standard of operation, monitoring, recording and reporting by highlighting non-compliance and problem areas
  • Providing solutions to non-compliance and problem areas.

The following steps are followed by GCS when conducting a waste management facility audit:

1. A pre-audit meeting will be held with the client to determine the exact detail of all audits previously executed.
2. To ensure that all aspects of the site licence comply, a comprehensive audit control sheet will be used to record all compliance and non-compliance issues and recommendations. To assist with further deviations, a photometric system will be implemented. The audit will

include the following aspects:

  • Review the existing licence conditions and requirements thereof
  • Take into account the principle of cradle to grave waste management
  • Collect and interpret existing available data and test results

3. GCS compiles a comprehensive audit report, which will include the following:

  • The findings from the site visit and interviews with management
  • The non-compliance issues
  • The compliance items
  • Interpretation of available data and test results.
  • Recommendations and proposed solutions to non-compliant and problem areas
  • Compliance auditing provides insight into possible ways of improving the waste management system in use.
