Permitting, Compliance Monitoring and Reporting
Prior to initiating or making changes for a project that may have environmental impacts, proponents are required to apply for and obtain the necessary regulatory approvals and authorizations, such as permits, licenses, notices of work, etc. This is to ensure that these activities are reviewed by technical experts, whereby assessments of potential impacts to the surrounding social and natural environments are evaluated and required mitigations/ conditions are thereby prescribed.
FROSKR can support the following permitting:
- Permits to Take Water
- Environmental Compliance Approvals (Air and Noise, Industrial Sewage Works, Waste Disposal Site, Waste Management Systems, etc.)
- Environmental Activity and Sector Registry
- Compliance and ISO Auditing
Going hand in hand with the application processes is the annual monitoring/sampling and reporting requirements, which are stipulated in the permits. Environmental monitoring is a broad term for the systematic sampling of water, soil, air, and plant and animal life. This service is key to all stages of the mining cycle and is used to establish baselines, trends and cumulative effects of projects. The determination of the required environmental monitoring is completed on a case-by-case basis, incorporating applicable regulations and client requirements. FROSKR understands the importance of timely submission of the reports to the regulatory bodies to ensure compliance.
