Latest EHS Regulations Updates Assist Companies to Achieve EHS Compliance

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, April 20, 2022 / -- STP ComplianceEHS (STP) and Antea Group announce the release of its recently updated Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Audit Protocol for Romania.

This audit protocol, which covers relevant national and European Union (EU) EHS requirements, was previously updated in August 2019. The regulatory date for this release is December 2021.

Leading companies around the world use EHS audit protocols to understand the scope of their EHS regulatory obligations and rapidly collect, share, archive, and export audit findings in a cost-effective manner. EHS audit protocols are now also prepared by Antea Group in partnership with STP and continue to focus on those national (plus, in some cases, regional or provincial) EHS requirements that have site-specific application for manufacturing operations. As a leading EHS management consulting firm with a global network of experienced EHS teaming partners, Antea Group has in-depth knowledge and technical expertise of local/regional EHS requirements.

STP maintains leading-edge EHS audit protocols for more than 50 jurisdictions. The protocol documents are written in English and are available in MS Word, Adobe Acrobat and Excel formats, as well as through STP’s web-based portal or can be integrated into an existing company platform. Using the protocols’ custom templates and advanced functionality features, auditors can easily track audit findings and manage data over time to improve compliance, risk management and safety performance. In addition, STP’s formatting is compatible with leading risk management and sustainability platform providers.

Highlights of selected legislation covered in the newly developed protocol include:

- Waste Management: Emergency Ordinance No. 92/2021 on Waste, which provides the national framework for waste management in Romania, was issued on 26 August 2021, repealing and replacing former Law No. 211/2011 on Waste. The purpose of the Ordinance is to ensure a high level of environmental and population health protection through measures to prevent and reduce the generation of waste, ensure efficient waste management, reduce the adverse effects of waste, and ensure prudent and rational use of resources. It raises municipal waste recycling targets and establishes rules for calculating recycling targets. This Ordinance also repeals, among other legislative documents,
Decision No. 235/2007 on the Management of Waste Oils, which provided a specific methodology for monitoring, recording, and reporting waste oils. As at 31 December 2021, Decision No. 235/2007 has not been replaced.
