Concept Management suggest that all our customers visit our site and assess the processes, understand what we do and how we do it. The primary objective of carrying out an audit is to determine our compliance with the Act’s data protection principles. This will include the identification of weaknesses and strengths from a risk mitigation perspective. Where an audit is undertaken the objective will extend to a broader following of good practice. Good practice is defined under section 51(9) of the Act as ‘such practice in the processing of personal data as appears to the Commissioner to be desirable having regard to the interests of data subjects and others, and includes (but is not limited to) compliance with the requirements of this Act’.
The standards against which compliance will be judged will be the legal requirements of the Act as amplified in the Information Commissioner’s Office’s (ICO) ‘The Guide to Data Protection’ together with other relevant ICO codes and guidance, which can be found on the ICO website.
Concept Management also provide a free no obligation waste audit for an accurate assessment of your data security needs, recycling and waste management requirements. No two customers are the same and you will receive practical, cost-effective recommendations specific to you, to improve data security, reduce your costs and increase the recovery of recyclables.
You can rely on our in depth knowledge of the complex and ever changing legislation surrounding environmental compliance and our process of avoid, minimise, reuse and recycle to ensure that you are meeting your environmental commitments.
Ongoing site audits are also available to ensure the continuous improvement of your waste management and commercial recycling and to guarantee you the most economical and environmentally responsible solutions.
Also, from an Environment Agency requirement, Concept Management perform Annual Audits of all our downstream partners to ensure that our partners comply with the Environment Agency’s principles. That are principally when they receive WEEE, we are able to demonstrate that we treat WEEE according to the guidance on best available treatment, recovery and recycling techniques BATRRT and that they have personnel in place with suitable levels of qualification (Certificate of Technical Competence COTC) issued by The Waste Management Industry Training and Advisory Board (WAMITAB)
This will include the identification of weaknesses and strengths from a risk mitigation perspective. Where an audit is undertaken the objective will extend to a broader following of good practice and can audit environmental permits and credentials, written procedures for all recycling activity undertaken on site and management of further downstream partners who may perform subsequent processes on e-waste.
