Veolia Audited Facilities

Audited Facilities

Occasionally, Veolia's hazardous waste group does not have company-owned facilities to accommodate the proper transport, disposal or recycling of a particular waste stream. In these cases, we will seek an appropriate third-party facility to partner with, and manage the waste handling on your behalf.

Once a potential facility has been identified by expert Veolia personnel, it must pass a rigorous auditing process before it can be approved for our use. Interviews conducted with key facility personnel are especially important in evaluating whether the company promotes a steadfast commitment to compliance, which is a critical qualifier in determining whether the facility may be accepted as a Veolia Audited Facility.

AUDITING PROCESS

Veolia's auditing process is designed to verify that a facility is in complete compliance with all federal, state and local agencies. The review process is a comprehensive environmental assessment of the facility and includes the following steps:
 

FINANCIAL REVIEW

The financial health and long term viability of the facility is established by reviewing all financial records.

REGULATOR REVIEW

A Veolia inspector conducts an on-site review of the facility during which extensive information is obtained (see list at left), including any information pertinent to the facility. The on-site visit includes interviews with key facility personnel.

AGENCY FILE REVIEW

Veolia’s inspector may either conduct a physical file review with appropriate agencies or gather information through phone interviews with authorized agency personnel, computer searches and agency inspection reports. This review usually involves documents detailing agency inspections and results, documents detailing any remedial/corrective action issues, and/or exceedances of any environmental standards.
