As of January 1, 2016, entrepreneurs who recycle packaging waste are required to carry out an annual external audit. The deadline for this obligation is 30 April of the year following the year in which it occurs.
The entry into force of these regulations means that 2016 was the first year audited. The new regulations concern companies that carry out recycling or other then recycling recovery process of packaging waste that issue DPO or DPR documents, as well as those who export packaging waste and companies carrying out intra-community deliveries of packaging waste that have issued EDPR or EDPO documents in a given calendar year. The audit can only be carried out by an accredited environmental verifier, ie EMAS accredited units. The scope of the annual audit includes, but is not limited to, checking permits, assessing the compatibility of the recovery process with those permits, assessing the technical capabilities of the recycler, and verifying the correctness and formality of the DPO, DPR, EDPO and EPDR documents issued.
Staying in line with the laws, DCR Sp. z o.o. underwent an external audit by selecting DNV GL as the partner of this operation, a group established in 2013 but reaching its roots in 1864. In our opinion, international reach and many years of experience guarantee a reliable assessment.
The result of the audit is the report, which shows that DCR Sp. z o.o. conducts its business in a fair, transparent and fully compliant manner.
