Mastering Environmental Tasks Using Compliance Management Tools
Throughout the chemical process industries (CPI), many companies have found that traditional methods of complying with environmental requirements—in particular calculating emissions and managing recordkeeping, and reporting—have become unacceptably time consuming. The compliance demonstration challenges are compounded when a company has multiple facilities for which to track and warehouse compliance information. These facilities may be located in different states and may operate varied types of equipment that have different regulatory requirements. In an effort to streamline the arduous compliance demonstration progress, many organizations are turning to compliance management tools. In order to implement such a solution, companies must assess the scope and focus of their environmental data management needs and employ a thorough planning process for developing the best site-specific tool.
