Nimonik identifies applicable documents and keeps you up-to-date with new and changing obligations.

Four Steps to Compliance

Nimonik’s EHS Experts help hundreds of global organizations improve their EHS compliance program.

Built on experience, our Four Step Plan will ensure you are ready for your next management system audit.

Step 1: Choose your Industry, Jurisdictions and EHS Topics

Using Nimonik’s organized database of over 400,000 regulatory documents and 150,000 obligations, we work with you to map your operations to

  • jurisdictions;
  • industries;
  • equipment;
  • document types; and
  • EHS Topics (check the complete list of EHS Topics here).

    We then provide you with an up-to-date online list of documents, laws, and standards applicable to your operations.

    If you have already conducted this analysis internally or with consultants, we can perform a gap analysis of your existing list of applicable documents.

Step 2: Identify compliance obligations applicable to your operations

Once the key documents are identified and agreed upon, we can then identify the obligations within the regulatory documents that are applicable to your organization.

Step 3: Conduct Internal EHS Audits against your obligations

Based on the obligations identified in Step 2 we provide you with comprehensive checklists to audit your organization against the obligations. This is done by filtering auditable obligations by our EHS Topics, Equipment and Jurisdiction and generating an Audit Protocol for use on the web and mobile devices.

We help you define an Internal Audit Program that ensures compliance with government obligations and industry standards of your choice.

You can conduct audits on the web platform or with a dynamic mobile app that works without an internet connection. You can schedule audits ahead of time, prepare pre-audit material, track audit progress, and generate audit reports at the click of a button. Read more about auditing tools here.

Step 4: Review assigned Actions when obligations change

Nimonik's experienced EHS experts monitor government and industry publications every day.

You receive easy to understand emails and alerts when relevant legislation changes or a new one is introduced. The appropriate people receive ‘Actions’ to review the changes. As you complete your Actions you build a record of your compliance efforts that can be used during an audit or a management review.
