Compliance HouseCompliance with, for example, climate and environmental requirements within the industrial sector is of great importance. Enterprises in industrial sectors are faced with the growing number and diversity of administrative and private regulations, such as the Environmental Management Act and the Nature Conservation Act and the associated General Administrative Measures (AMvBs) such as the Activities Decree and the Nature Conservation Decree. Various reasons can be found for this situation: more and more administrative regulations are being drawn up, professional organisations are drawing up their own regulations, and societal pressure is forcing the industry to come up with clear measures for environmental policy. Considering the past few years, society’s influence on business operations has continued to increase.Curious about how your company is doing in the context of compliance and what Compliance House can do for you?

Mutual dependency

The developments described lead to the fact that the traditional sustainability policy of companies, developed in the past with a strong view from the organisation towards the environment, is no longer sufficient. Increasingly complex environmental regulations must be structurally embedded in the organisation. The sustainability policy should not focus on the difference, but on the mutual dependency between the company and its environment. This is achievable by thorough analysis and policy formulation. This policy helps to meet compliance obligations structurally and proactively. In addition, it is important to convert the results of the analysis into what the actual added value and unique value of a company is.

Compliance Officer

Previously, these various compliance obligations could be handled quite easily by the QHSE employee. On the one hand, this employee is responsible for applying for the necessary permits and, on the other hand, for implementing the requirements of these permits in the organisation. Environmental management systems complement administrative requirements. Due to the increasing amount, diversity and complexity of administrative and private regulations, it appears in practice that the QHSE employee needs more and more support and we see an increase of fully-fledged compliance specialists, such as a Compliance Officer. A Compliance Officer has a broad knowledge of the laws applicable to the company and the industry as a whole and helps ensure that the company complies with the rules that apply to them, usually by reducing the risk of violating those rules.
