Waste Management

Supporting waste management, recovery, reduction and recycling activities to deliver vital economic and environmental goals

From farms to mines, households to healthcare, as producers and consumers, waste management is a growing concern. From individual waste such as food, packaging, batteries and electricals to collective waste such as effluent, recycled oils, waste water, contaminated land or used construction and building materials, the aim is to produce less and manage it more positively. This is especially true for rare resources and hazardous areas with a high risk or that impact on the environment.

Accreditation works to deliver safety, accuracy and compliance throughout the waste management process. Where standards exist or quality initiatives aim to control and drive change, accredited certificates, inspections, test and measurements can help deliver quality practice.
