BS8555 Seren Scheme

The implementation of an Environmental Management System (EMS) within your organization may be one of the most beneficial actions you can undertake. Compliance with legislation, reducing your utility costs and managing your environmental risks are far easier when you have an accredited EMS such as BS 8555. This British Standard is recognised throughout the UK and recommended by UK & regional Governments, the Environment Agency and numerous large and small companies.       

The UKAS accredited Seren Scheme has been designed to offer you a robust and cost effective methodology to register your organization against the requirements of BS 8555. We can offer you the best service by a highly experienced team of Inspectors though our UKAS accredited Inspection Body Tarian Inspection Services.

BS8555 Seren Scheme

BS 8555 is split into 5 separate phases. You choose whether you wish to use the Seren Scheme in a staged approach to reach other EMS standards such as ISO 14001 or EMAS or apply for registration at a phase that is appropriate to the nature and scale of your business and remain at that phase. In fact, the requirements of Phase 5 exceed the requirements of ISO 14001. As long as you pass an annual Inspection you can remain at that particular phase indefinitely and use your EMS to demonstrate to stakeholders and customers your commitment to environmental management.

Tarian Inspection Services will carry out your Inspection in a friendly, down-to-earth and highly practical way, ensuring that you have a robust Environmental Management System that gives your organization credibility, good management and cost savings.
