The fabricator/steelwork contractor is required to maintain an Environmental Management System (EMS). The ASI provides an online EMS mentoring system to BS 8555 which is designed for small-to-medium enterprises. Fabricators with ISO 14001 can use this scheme to fulfil their obligations, but must still provide evidence through the web-based Environmental Management System (EMS) Mentor and be working on an environmental improvement project.
A joining fee and an annual fee are payable and these cover the introductory mentoring session, an annual audit and administration costs. During the annual audit, the environmental improvement of the company is measured and evaluated. The ASI reserves the right to conduct the ESC audit on-site if required to ensure that the projects listed on the online EMS Mentor are operational.
