EMAS is the premium environmental management system of the European Union which became applicable worldwide in 2011. EMAS is based on three pillars – performance, credibility and transparency. Compliance with legal provisions is mandatory, the continuous improvement of environmental performance has to exceed legal requirements.
The examination of such an environmental management system can only be carried out by an accredited environmental verifier. It consists of a comprehensive verification of the documentation and the practical application of the system as well as the validation of the environmental statement. The final registration includes another consultation of the authorities in charge of the respective organisation as to whether there is an obstacle to the registration in the EMAS register.
I have worked as an accredited environmental verifier for EMAS organisations since 1996. The accreditation is valid for specific branches. Please find the list of branches for which I am accredited under (Link einfügen).
