Consultancy

Hands-on support with bespoke legal registers and training for your team.

A tailored build of your legal registers and aspects & impacts register to put you on the right track.

Our specialist consultancy team will build your bespoke legal register for your business. They will work with you to find the legislation that is relevant to your business and will detail why it’s relevant. An accompanying Compliance Action Plan will flag up any areas that you need to work on.

Each entry in your register will contain a link to the corresponding summary of that entry in our Consolidated service. This summary pulls all amendments for that piece of legislation into one document, showing you how the law stands today. No need to trawl through all the amendments and then piece them together yourself – we’ve done the hard work for you. It also means your register is not full of amending documents; it can focus on what it needs to do.

If you’re looking for an aspects & impacts register, we can help you identify the aspects associated with your activities, products and services that could impact the environment. We can then look at the risks and opportunities and produce a register that ties it all together.​

Taking the pressure off of updating your registers.

In addition to our legal register build service, you can choose to add on our Managed Update Service. Our consultants will update your legal register over the year to ensure it is as up to date as possible, freeing up your time and providing you with confidence in your register. This includes a Register Revision Tracker so that you can see what’s changed — you won’t miss a thing.

Ensure fresh and accurate knowledge of crucial compliance areas.

Our  training courses cover all the main legal requirements that you need to know within environment or safety. They are suitable for all levels of knowledge and are ideal for training your managers or simply refreshing your knowledge.
