Environment Agency gives thumbs up for effluent sampling

Posted: Monday 16th July 2012

Environmental monitoring specialist, enitial, has become one of the few sampling companies in the UK allowed to deliver effluent sampling under the Environment Agency’s monitoring certifications scheme (MCERTS).

The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) awards the MCERTS standard to organisations who can prove they are able to provide a consistently high quality sampling service, giving the Environment Agency confidence in their sampling of untreated and treated sewage effluents and trade effluents.

Ivor Parry, business development director at enitial said: “enitial is always striving to provide a high quality service. Receiving this accreditation means our technicians can deliver monitoring services to water utility sites that are subject to permits requiring Operator Self Monitoring (OSM). It’s a requirement for many water companies as the Environment Agency uses the results to determine how well a company complies with its permit conditions.”

After an extensive audit, enitial was awarded accreditation to ISO/IES 17025:2005 and the Environment Agency’s MCERTS Performance Standard for organisations undertaking sampling and chemical testing of water for the sampling of untreated and treated sewage effluents and trade effluents.
