Has Your Facility Recently Been Inspected by the Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks ?

By Terry Lam (tlam@ortech.ca)

A common result of an Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks (“MECP”), formerly Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (“MOECC”) inspection for a small business is a finding that the facility is in administrative non-compliance because they are lacking the necessary environmental permits, such as an Environmental Compliance Approval ("ECA") or an Environmental Sector and Activity Registry ("EASR") registration. In fact, it has been estimated that 40% of facilities in Ontario, mostly small businesses, do not have the required permits.

If your facility has recently been required to submit an ECA application or to register an activity on the EASR as a result of an MOE inspection, it is important to take quick action to ensure that compliance dates are met. As a leading environmental consulting firm with over 50 years of experience, ORTECH’s qualified consultants can help your facility tackle these requirements in a timely, effective, and cost-efficient manner.

ORTECH can assist your facility:

  • Negotiate with the MECP to obtain realistic compliance dates for inspection findings;
  • Prepare and submit an ECA application for any industry, utility, or small business; and,
  • Register an activity (such as a heating system) on the EASR.

Having ORTECH on your side will allow your facility to navigate the bureaucracy of permit applications as quickly and painless as possible, avoiding unnecessary frustration. Let our experience work for you.
