The legal compliance of an organisation is a fundamental point to ensure the continuity of the business, the reputation of the organisation/brand, the motivation of the employees and the sustainability of the organisation.
An essential task for any organisation is to define and implement a procedure that ensures that the legal requirements applicable to it are identified, that the Organisation complies with them and that they are kept up to date.
Through our TRC Facilities application, you can manage the legal compliance of each of your facilities, identifying the legal requirements that apply to you, developing checklists to support legal compliance audits as well as managing your licenses in an integrated way. The TRC team will keep you updated and support you according to your needs to ensure compliance with the legal requirements that are applicable to your Organisation.
The areas in our scope of action include:
Different licenses are required to install/expand and explore numerous activities, which must be obtained to ensure compliance with the regulations in force.
In this sense, to support you in complying with these legal requirements, TRC has an expert team in this area, with experience in multiple projects and a special focus on the extractive field, industry and waste management.
To clarify your doubts, without any commitment, we have developed a portal in which we present an analysis of the different licenses that may be applicable, and which you can explore by activity sector. For further information on this subject, please contact our team.
EIA POST-EVALUATION AUDITS
The Post-Evaluation procedure is established in Decree-Law No. 151-B/2013, of 31 October, in its current wording, and applies to projects with favourable decisions under the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) regime.
This procedure aims to verify compliance and assess the adequacy and effectiveness of the terms and conditions of project approval, established in the AIA procedure, including constraints, minimisation measures, compensation measures, monitoring programmes and others, such as landscape recovery and integration projects, environmental monitoring of the work, among others.
The evaluation of the adequacy and effectiveness allows, on the one hand, to conclude if the constraints and measures imposed allowed to avoid, minimise or compensate the negative impacts and to enhance the positive effects and, on the other hand, to know the real impacts of the project, through monitoring.
Our team includes Environmental Verifiers qualified by the APA to carry out EIA Post-Evaluation Audits. For further information on this subject, please contact our team.
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT
The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a preventive instrument for environmental policy, sustained by the carrying out of studies and consulting, with the objective of collecting information, identification and forecasting of environmental effects of specific projects, as well as identifying and proposing measures to avoid, minimise or compensate such effects, aiming at a decision on the viability of executing such projects and their respective post-assessment.
Decree-Law 151-B/2013, in its current wording, establishes the Legal Regime of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), which transposes to the internal legal order the Directive No. 2014/52/EU, on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on the environment.
Within this scope, we carry out Environmental Impact Studies, Environmental Incidence Studies, Preliminary Studies and Consulting that may be necessary for the EIA application, monitoring the EIA process until the desired license or authorisation is obtained, or necessary subsequent monitoring activities.
