iCOR – Pioneering software for enhanced protection against environmental prosecution
iCOR is developed by environmental legislation professionals whose primary goal is to evaluate your environmental performance, free from judgement, helping you develop a truly effective action plan to stay compliant.
What iCOR does
- Creates environmental compliance obligation registers for UK businesses and manufacturers
- Specifically focuses on ISO14001 clauses that organisations struggle the most with, for example:
- Clause 6.1.3 Compliance Obligations
Organisations are required to have access to, and maintain awareness of environmental legislation. Answering to iCOR’s simple audit builds your organisation’s bespoke compliance register.
- Clause 6.1.4 Planning Action
This clause looks at how your organisation’s environmental action plan and its implementation into the Environmental Management System (EMS) and the organisations’ processes. iCOR determines the sufficiency of your controls and write your compliance statements, and tells if not all regulatory requirements are met.
- Section 7 Support
This section relates to resource allocation, competency, awareness and communication, all supported via iCOR’s Action Planning function, and mechanisms for team collaboration. Often, solutions for compliance when planning action are additional training and communication strategies to support the EMS.
- Clause 9.1.2 Evaluation of compliance
Your answers to iCOR’s simple questionnaire about your organisation’s business activities builds a bespoke register and compliance statements to reflect your processes, which can then be certified by ISO auditors. Suggested 1 day per audit, and repeat every 6-12 months.
- Clause 9.1.1 Monitoring, measuring, analysis and evaluation
This clause requires the audit results are accurate and consistent for the ease of reporting well-reported and trends detection/identification. iCOR graphically represents the audit results to easily interpret your current ‘status of compliance’ showing areas of conformity, non-conformity, open and closed actions, etc. iCOR’s timeline function also tracks progress over time.
- Clause 10.2 Non-conformity and corrective action
This clause states the organisation must implement procedures for the management of non-conformities and consistent corrective behaviour with preventative decisions – iCOR identifies your compliance status. Any Non-Conformities (NC) are transposed into the action planner, allowing the site manager to assign actions, set deadlines and monitor progress. A resolved issue becomes a compliance statement on your register.
iCOR’s special incident reporting function allows to raise and address environmental concerns outside of the structured audit to ensure that issues are managed pro-actively and evidence is obtained.
- Clause 10.3 Continual improvement
An important clause from an ISO14001 perspective – requires continual improvement, best facilitated through internal audits, compliance evaluation, performance assessment, management reviews, etc. To improve, the organisation needs to take action to correct mistakes, innovate, reorganise aspects that don’t work, and continually improve – all of which is supported via iCOR.
- Clause 6.1.3 Compliance Obligations
- Involves all the necessary staff into action
- Updates your team on all the upcoming legislation relevant to your business
