Environmental Regulatory Requirements Monitoring

Regional and national environmental regulations are complex. Navigating that complexity successfully requires specialist skills.

Tonkin + Taylor’s resource management specialists have these skills and a wealth of experience to back them up. We monitor changes that are relevant to our clients’ activities, operations and property portfolios and provide specific and accurate information. This helps to avoid potential liability and unnecessary costs.

We can help our clients:

  • Manage risk: New Zealand environmental legislation and regulations are changing quickly and these changes are increasing complexity and potential liability
  • Identify matters that affect their interests: Short timeframes limit participation in legislative and resource consent processes, but by alerting clients to matters that affect them we provide opportunities to get involved
  • Save time and costs: We can monitor legislative and regulatory changes relieving clients of this time-consuming task
  • Meet ISO14001 requirements: We help them keep up with legislative changes as is required by the ISO standard for environmental management systems.
