In 2015, the Comunidad Valenciana published the Order 9/2015 of March 30, of the Consellería de Infraestructuras, Territorio y Medio Ambiente de la Comunitat Valenciana that approves the surveillance and control protocol for the integrated environmental authorisation requirements and environmental licenses verification of compliance of the Comunidad Valenciana.
In the Order 9/2015 is stablished and approved the procedure protocol, that as technical instruction, should be followed by the Collaborating Entities in the area of Environmental Quality (ECMCA´s) in the exercise of their duties relating to environmental action´s mechanisms. The protocol is adapted to the UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17020 standard, which will be the basis for entities accredited by ENAC (Entidad Nacional de Acreditación) to be listed in the ECMCA´s Registry for the field of surveillance and environmental control of activities.
Applus+ already has this accreditation, and with the vision of being a leading company in inspection and testing, has been able to extend the inspection´s scope, including the accreditation of this new service, which enables to carry out industrial facilities verification:
- Prior to the beginning or implementation of the activity: for new facilities and for which are carrying out modifications in it, it´s activities and/or processes.
- Periodically: active facilities that should be reviewed before the authorization or licences renewal.
- Extraordinary: when determined by the competent administration to verify corrections to holders.
On the one side, inspections are carried out to check if facilities and activities are implemented according to the authorized projects and, on the other hand, are developed fulfilling the requirements that condition the Integrated Environmental Authorizations (AAI's) and Environmental Licenses (LA's) granted to them.
Applus+ strengthen its position in the Comunidad Valenciana as one of the ECMCA who has the highest recognitions to technical competence and quality relating to inspection and testing activities. In Applus+, with this field of inspection, we complete the environmental services that we already provide for environmental control in air, water, soil and waste pollution.
