License to operate
Many asset owners experience uncertainty regarding their compliance to different forms of government required legislation. This often results from a lack of evidence (tracking and tracing). Furthermore, uncertainties regarding integrity / safety / emissions / energy / waste management, planning and execution can be an issue.
We are ready to support you to improve your compliance and get you back in control. We apply the field proven four-step approach of assess - plan - do - assure. Common elements are updating compliance registers, setting up structured "proof collection" processes and setting up the right organization to manage those processes. As per ISO19600, this often includes defining a compliance officer role.
We provide help with a field proven four-step approach:
Analysing legislation and requirements, in a structured manner, requires a traceable and maintainable approach. This should be transparent and traceable for those who require such information.
For this reason, we determine both as per content as well as per applied medium (CMMS, company documents system, etc.), what should be presented, what is present and how it is updated. This results in a gap-analysis that comprises the activities that need to be implemented, as well as how the overview over these activities is to be maintained and safeguarded.
Plan the work
In the planning phase, we determine impact and define preparatory actions and check in order to ensure a sustainable implementation of the compliance process. This comprises what, where, how, and by whom, in relationship with the compliance process.
For example: where will the data be stored and maintained, by whom, which division of roles, using which type of reporting, where the used compliance register is stored, and how all related compliance reporting is accessible for those involved. Stork will help you plan and define this information.
Time for action
In this step, we fill up the identified gaps (regarding the compliance process). This contains the additional tasks related to compliance. It may also comprise a review or update of contracts for suppliers and contractors.
In some cases, this may even contain tasks for tagging specific assets, in order to ensure that the related tasks can be linked to the specific assets to which it applies.
In this step in the process, we will determine and document applicable procedures and division of roles. This ensures a sustainable implementation of the compliance process. Also, feedback on the generated reports as well as required improvements need to be positioned, as all these are required in order to assure that the compliance process as a whole will be aligned with current and future requirements.
Asset owners should keep in mind that the legislative framework is subjected to changes with time, as well as the related standards and guidelines. All this is part of the framework that needs to be implemented in order to achieve a sustainable compliance process for an organization.
