The EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) is a management tool for companies to continuously improve their environmental behaviour and report on it to the various stakeholders (workers, management, owners, neighbours, etc.), thereby increasing transparency.
With this in mind, they set up an environmental management system designed for a particular purpose: to publish information on their environmental performance.
Both the environmental management system implemented and the Environmental Statement – the tool for communicating environmental goals and results – should be evaluated by an accredited Environmental Verifier.
Before operating, the Verifier must be accredited by one of the accreditation systems in place in one of the EU Member States.
Accredited Environmental Verifiers now work in almost every economic sector: energy, transport, chemicals, pharmacy, services, construction and infrastructure, telecommunications, etc.
Environmental Verifiers must demonstrate compliance with the requirements of Regulation (EC) No 1221/2009 for accreditation purposes.
Likewise, all ENAC documentation relative to accreditation criteria and procedures for Environmental Verifiers is available in the section.
