consultancy, environmental consultancyEnvironmental audits are usually processed in connection with the transfer of state or private property (municipalities, land fund, military property, etc.) to legal persons, individuals, or municipalities. As a general rule, the process is divided into two stages: administrative stage and survey stage. The aim is to independently review all available data regarding individual environmental components from the historical results of surveys previously conducted within the site and its surroundings, together with the implementation of specific survey work and overall assessment of risk factors arising from the potential existence of environmental burden. Environmental audits also include proposals for remedial measures and quantification of the financial costs required for the implementation thereof.

Environmental consultancy - Risk analyses

Risk analyses are recommended in cases where suspicion exists regarding the existence of a serious threat or contamination of surface or underground water, or regarding other negative effects of contamination on human health or individual environment components, where it is impossible to set out corrective measures based on a clearly proven violation of legal regulations. In these cases, risk analysis becomes a critical expert basis for the process of the elimination of risks associated with the contamination.

Risk analyses are processed according to Ministry of the Environment Methodical Instruction No. 12, referred to in the Bulletin of the Ministry of the Environment, Volume XV, Issue 9, of September 2005. Following an approval by the relevant institutions, they become the key basis for the determination of corrective actions, either by the Czech Environmental Inspection or the Regional Authority.
