Environment

Growing awareness of the impact of human activity on the environment and public health has led to the development and use of different methods and technologies to monitor and reduce the effects of pollution. To this end, governments have adopted legislative and political measures to minimise these effects and ensure compliance with environmental measures. The participation of technically competent accredited organizations gives society the confidence that pollution and environmental protection are being managed correctly.
