Emissions Monitoring

Emissions services from SGS – meet environmental permit compliance for emissions to air, land and water.

Businesses that make emissions to air, land or water are regulated by the Environment Agency under strict European and UK laws to protect the environment and human health. If your company needs to comply with these laws, you will need permission from the Environment Agency to operate. This usually comes in the form of a permit, which requires your company to monitor these emissions.

Businesses either monitor their emissions all of the time, known as continuous monitoring, or at times defined in their permit, known as spot tests or periodic monitoring. In both cases they must meet the Environment Agency’s quality requirements. Breaches can result in extensive damage to the environment or human health.

We can help you meet your obligations by providing site analysts to carry out testing of emissions on your behalf for continuous or periodic monitoring. We carry out on-site inspections and monitoring to ensure your businesses is complying with your environmental permits.
