The Compliance Assessment Scheme (CAS) was first introduced in 2009 and has been designed to demonstrate the level of compliance associated with specific licence conditions including site data returns and desk-based inspections, determined by the level of risk involved in site operations. There are six classifications in the scheme: Excellent, Good, Broadly Compliant, At Risk, Poor, and Very Poor. Results of the assessment are published online.
As a manufacturing site operating under a SEPA (Scottish Environment Protection Agency), Scotland’s Environmental Regulator, IPPC (Integrated Pollution Prevention Control) Permit, we have a responsibility to ensure that our site operates in a manner which does not breach our permit conditions. We are also required to report the volume of utilities, raw materials, and solvent emissions we use or produce on an annual basis.
For Piramal Grangemouth, our 2016 reporting was completed and submitted on time and has seen us yet again retain our “Excellent” rating. This is great news for the site and continues to build on our positive relationship with SEPA and our commitment to protect the environment.
