Environmental Audits – A Part of Doing Business in Ontario

Environmental Audits and Business in Ontario
 
An environmental audit is a series of investigations that are conducted on a business' systems and processes to assess the impact on the environment. It involves a number of investigations, assessments and evaluations that are designed to grade the ability of the business facilities to comply with the environmental Acts and regulations that are present in Ontario and Canada.
 
The Environmental Protection Act (EPA) prohibits any business from operating legally in Ontario without the approval of the Ministry of the Environment (MOE). In order to receive approval, the business must demonstrate compliance with the regulations for releasing contaminants into the environment. Any business that releases contaminants, including noise and vibration, into the air, land or water must either apply for approval to operate or register the system with the MOE.
