The german legislation in the environmental sector as well as in the occupational and operational safety domain is characterized by numerous coexisting laws and regulations for different legal aspect. The “Compliance Audit” is a comprehensive, systematic and documented assessment of all EHS relevant corporate aspects with the aim to identify possible environmental or occupational safety issues.
In the scope of the audit, the compliance with all legal requirements of the business activities is tested. The auditing process identifies existing gaps and uncertainties in the legal interpretation in regard to technical issues and formulates clear and cost-efficient technical measures in order to correct detected shortcomings.
Key points for a Compliance Audit (among others):
- Emission and immission standards and guidelines
- Pollutant and emission inventory and permits
- Water-legislative licenses and permits
- Handling of hazardous substances, storage etc.
- Waste management
- Subterranean and surface storage tanks
- Accident and damage avoidance programs
- Soil and groundwater contaminations
- Investigations and restorations
- PCB containing equipment and PCB disposal
- Occupational and operational safety
- Machine and product safety
- Radioactive radiation
- Accident prevention
- Emergency planning and fire and explosion protection
- Effects of prospective legislation
The “Compliance Audit” comprises basically the compliance with legal requirements in the field ofoperational and occupational safety as well as theenvironmental sector. It requires extensive knowledge about the relevant legislation as well as its implementation by competent authorities.
The Peschla + Rochmes GmbH is perfectly aquainted with all aspects of the german EHS legislation and its implementation on various official levels. Since more than 18 years we observe the legal developments not only from the angle of the producer / “polluter” but also from the legislative point of view.

Industrial Data Management
Have you got a large data stock consisting of planning documents, analytical results or expertises which is only insufficiently structured? We offer our support to optimize your data management. The first step is a Needs Assessment – an analysis of existing data – that helps us to define the amount and the type of the available data.
Which format do the datasets have?
- Good or low quality
- Digitized and stored in single files with different formats or consistent formats?
The urgency to implement a database system often arises during a needs assessment. Many customers realize only then how tidious and complex it is to compile data stocks and to sort and interpret them.
After sorting and analyzing the available project data and data stocks we can estimate the effort required for implementing a » database/ GIS. Less complex data stocks without any position-dependent information can be managed in easy spreadsheets or spreadsheet programs (e.g. Excel).
Existing filling system can be managed by using for example a structered folder system. It is also possible to index the different folder contents in order to make them easily available by searching for keywords. The Peschla+Rochmes GmbH is helping you to find the most efficient solution to manage your data successfully.
