Environmental monitoring certs scheme

Environment Agency strengthens their Monitoring Certification Scheme policy

The British Environment Agency will outline a hardening policy on the use of MCERTS certified products at WWEM 2010 (Telford, GB, 10th and 11th November 2010).

Summarising his forthcoming presentation at the event, the Agency's Paul Wiggins says, “A good number of flow meters have now achieved MCERTS, so all new and replacement meters must now be certified.” He reports a high number of MCERTS product applications for both flow and analytical instruments and expects many of these to receive certificates at the WWEM event, adding: “We can now look forward to a time when the number of certified analytical instruments will enable us to enforce the MCERTS policy for all new and replacement water quality monitoring instruments.”

Speakers from the Environment Agency at WWEM 2010 will also provide an update on Better Regulation and the Environmental Permitting Regulations (EPR) and include the latest position on operator self-monitoring (OSM) and the role of MCERTS and Operator Monitoring Assessment (OMA) in supporting the move to OSM for industry and the water utilities.

Visitors to WWEM 2010 will include staff at every level within regulators, water companies, industrial manufacturers, consultants, education, researchers, process engineers and laboratory analysts.
