The Legal Requirement & Auditing Assessment

Legal compliance comprises the culture, processes and structures directed at ensuring the organization meets its legal requirements, as well as its core values and internal standards. Some laws are obvious and very visible to the workings of the organization, other laws are less obvious or visible, but nevertheless important.

There are two requirements for an organization to be compliant with the law, first its policies need to be consistent with the law. Second, its policies need to be complete with respect to the law. The process of evaluating applicable regulatory and non-regulatory responses to risk and selecting among them requires knowledge of the legal, economic and social factors, as well as knowledge of the business world in which legal teams operate. U2C makes it happen by working closely with executive teams and other business departments to align their goals and ensure proper communication and compliance in the legal requirements.

Environmental regulations and legal requirements
Environmental regulations in Malaysia operate to regulate the interaction of humanity and the natural environment toward the purpose of reducing the adverse impact of human activity in the industry. Understanding of the environmental regulations helps organization to prevent present and future externalities, and preservation of common resources from industrial exhaustion. U2C is able to assist organization to adapt to the environmental law in their day to day operations.
Environmental Impact & Aspect Assessment
An environmental impact assessment able to provide a view of the positive or negative impact that a project may have on environment, together consisting of the natural, social and economic aspects. The objective of the assessment is to helps decision makers consider the impacts to the environment when deciding whether to proceed with a project. The Department of Environment has established requirements where the assessment is compulsory. We offer one stop solutions for decision makers to understand the environmental commitments, provide justification and be accountable in their decisions.
RoHS and WEEE Requirements
Restriction of hazardous substances or RoHS directive aims to restrict certain dangerous substances commonly used in electronic and electronic equipment. Any RoHS compliant component is tested for the presence of Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg), Hexavalent chromium (Hex-Cr), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).

WEEE directive imposes the responsibility for the disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment on the manufacturers of such equipment. Companies need to establish infrastructure for colleting and disposing of WEEE in an ecologically friendly manner.

Since the RoHS and WEEE directive came into action in the EU, our company has assisted many companies complying with the directive through establishment of documentation, implementation and a screening system by our associate laboratories.
Environmental Auditing and Monitoring
Environmental monitoring and auditing are essential to characterize and determine the quality of the environment. It can be used as preparation of an environmental impact assessment as well as in many circumstances in which human activities carry a harmful risk to the environment. We are able to assist in the preparation and execution of environmental audit plan or monitoring programs in accordance to our client requirements.
Personal Air and Noise Monitoring
Personal air monitoring is essential in determining the amount of chemicals being inhaled by the workers in a specific time. Sampling strategies should be planned for a meaningful evaluation of air contaminants and prudent use of limited resources.

OSHA requires that employees be placed in a hearing conservation program if they are exposed to average noise levels of 85 dB or greater during an 8 hour workday. In order to determine if exposures are at or above this level, it may be necessary to measure or monitor the actual noise levels in the workplace and to estimate the noise exposure or "dose" received by employees during the workday.

Our specialists are equipped with knowledge of sampling requirements such as sampling media, recommended air volumes, and sample storage precautions which are essential in planning proper sampling strategies.
Chemical Health Risk Assessment (CHRA)
In April 2000, Department of Occupational Safety and Health has enacted the OSH (Use and Standard of Exposure of Chemical Hazardous to Health) Regulation which require the employer to perform an assessment of health risks arising from the use of chemical hazardous to health at workplace. Our DOSH registered assessors shall identify the hazards posed by each of the chemical used and evaluate the degree of exposure of the employee. Recommendation shall be provided to further improve the existing control measures to prevent or reduce the risk.
Contaminant Site Assessment
This assessment is focus on identifying known, hidden and potential environmental impairments through a thorough investigation on various factors. Data collected will be analyzed and to determine the site specific feasibility of cleanup and/or potential for future contamination. Our report fully documents the results of the specific analyses, our assessment of these findings and a further summary of available options. Where such action is essential, U2C is also able to provide a full service of remediation program recognized by the Department of Environment.
Chemical and Waste Handling Management
Chemical and waste handling management is the collection and transportation of the waste material to the DOE approved licensed facilities or landfill. The management of waste is also the key component in business ability to achieving or maintaining the ISO 14001 accreditation. We offer many viable options to manage your process waste materials in a sustainable way besides creating awareness among employees in a global perspective of resource management.
