Verification of environmental conformity (VEC)
The environmental verification (audit of environmental conformity) is used so as to make Due Diligence. In some cases, the organism’s manager or administrator must show they used the right means and precautions in order to abide by the laws and rules applicable on environment matters. The VEC is a “systematic process which determines if the operations and installations of the enterprise are in accordance with the laws, the rules and the right environmental practices”.
Inventory of Hazardous Materials
Certain financial institutions base their decisions on criteria that have been established by the said institutions. The inventory of hazardous materials stored on a site is one of the tools that can facilitate their decision making.
Certificates of authorisation (CA)
An autorisation certificate (AC) must be requested from the Ministère du Développement durable, de l’Environnement et des Parcs du Québec (MDDEP) for industrial projects, as per Article 22 of the Loi sur la Qualité de l’Environnement du Québec. The consultant and the client must collaborate so that the consultant may obtain all the necessary information needed to prepare for the AC request.
