Environmental Compliance

Environmental compliance covers a broad range of regulations, laws and standards created to manage our environment. The legislation affects everyone from householders to multi-national companies and covers a wide range of areas such as carbon emissions and carbon management, water quality, site permits, waste handling and storage, to name but a few.

One central piece of legislation in Europe and the UK concerns producer responsibility legislation. The purpose of this type of legislation is to make sure businesses that manufacture, import and sell products are responsible for their end of life environmental impact. This type of legislation covers the WEEE regulations, and packaging and batteries laws.

Under the regulations, it is mandatory that obligated producers are registered with the Environment Agency or a compliance scheme like Comply Direct. Failure to comply with the regulations can result in prosecution under criminal law or civil penalties.

However, there is no need to worry, as Comply Direct are here to help and offer peace of mind.

As a government approved compliance scheme, Comply Direct take over the legal obligations of its members and protects them from legal prosecution due to non-compliance. Our role is to bridge the gap between the legislation and the requirements for compliance. Our aim is to take the hassle out of the legislation and support our members in becoming compliant and maintaining this.
