ISO and OHSAS certifications renewed

Wiser Group’s certification for ISO 14001 (environmental management system), ISO 9001 (quality management system) and OHSAS 18001 (occupational health & safety management systems) have been renewed until 2019 after the group passed its external audits this month.

ISOQARThe group was extensively audited by ISOQAR to retain the UKAS accredited standards. Over the three day audit, ISOQAR reviewed and audited a variety of procedures, processes and records of the Wiser Group’s Integrated Management System and interviewed staff to ensure that the group is working in line with procedures, is legally compliant and has identified the environmental and health & safety impacts of its operations.

The Wiser Group has held certifications for ISO 14001, 9001 and OHSAS 18001 since 2010. Our certificate number is 10989.

In 2016, the Group will start working towards the new 2015 standards for ISO 14001 and 9001 which were announced in September 2015. Those holding earlier certifications are required to migrate these to the new standards by September 2018.

The EA has updated its odour management plan guidance

The EA has updated its odour management plan guidance. Overall, the guidance outlines how operators must control and monitor emissions from their activities that may cause pollution.

Changes include clarifications regarding when the EA will want an odour management plan. They may request one during pre-application, determination, variation or at any point during the lifetime of your permit.

Also, Materials recycling and handle odorous inputs or reject streams and Intensive Farming have been added to the list of Activities that require an odour management plan.
