Can you implement and maintain my EMS?
Bright Green Business can bring you up to the standards required for the initial Phase that you select and help you maintain the system in subsequent years.
How do you implement my EMS?
One of our experienced advisers will visit your premises to help prepare the key documents according to your specific circumstances. They will advise on refinements and a ‘final actions checklist’ in readiness for the inspection.
Who recognises BS 8555?
UKAS-accredited BS 8555 inspections are recognised by Business Gateway (Scotland), Defra and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA).
What do I get when I pass the inspection?
Your business will receive an inspection report and a certificate of compliance. The business will also be listed on the Green Ticks website, showing the Phase achieved and clearly demonstrating to customers and stakeholders your commitment to environmental improvement.
Do I have to be regularly re-inspected?
An annual re-inspection is required to keep your Green Ticks registration. To pass the annual re-inspection your EMS will have to be kept up-to-date.
What if I’m a member of the Bright Green Business Network?
Discounted rates apply.
What about the existing Green Ticks ratings for Bright Green Business Network members?
We’ll support the existing Green Ticks ratings for a transitional period.
How long does it take to get Green Ticks certified?
Depending on your level of commitment and other factors it can take as little as two to three months.
How much does it cost?
Green Ticks/BS 8555 registration is excellent value compared to full ISO14001 certification. We’ll give you a no-obligation quote based on your size, activities and number of sites to be considered.
