Compliance & standards

quality, CE Marking, environmental, H&S, ISO and other certification

Compliance is an important consideration for all businesses. Legislation and regulations define the minimum behaviours society has identified for responsible business, including those relating to employee safety, protection of the environment or responsibility to your neighbours. WLP will gain an understanding of your business and its marketplace. We take a common sense approach to helping you find the path of least resistance towards complying with the regulations that affect your organisation.

National, international and trade sector standards can help you demonstrate that your goods and/or services meet recognise best practice. WLP have experience developing and implementing standards across a range of sectors including service, manufacturing, food and construction. We help you demonstrate legal compliance (e.g. CE marking, machinery directive, construction products directive, environmental permitting), best practice (e.g. ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001) and compliance with trade/sector specific requirements (e.g. BRC, EN 1090).

We will:

  • Identify regulations and legislation that applies to your business.
  • Identify standards that relate to your business, services and products.
  • Provide you with common sense documentation and systems to implement and demonstrate compliance.
  • Talk to you in language you can understand (we do not talk jargon).
  • Provide you with support and guidance when you need it.
  • Develop systems to help you meet these standards.
  • Assist you with implementation and maintenance of management systems to achieve your objectives.
