Environmental Compliance Program
PARTNERS IN THE
SOLUTION® COMPLIANCE PROGRAM FOR VEHICLE DISMANTLERS
members of the State of California Auto Dismantlers Association
(SCADA) participate in a compliance program we call "Partners
in the Solution." The Partners program provides recognition
that participating member facilities meet specified business
and licensing, environmental, and safety standards. This
proactive, industry-led approach motivates facility operators
to achieve a high level of performance, and assists them
in complying with a complicate array of business, environmental
and safety regulations.
Program Manual program standards are listed
and explained in this easy-to-read manual, along with
an explanation of the audit procedures and resource
contact information. The manual is in loose-leaf binder
form, which can be easily updated.
Visits the Partners program provides an audit
visit to participating facilities each year, to assess compliance
with the standards. The audit consists of a general review
of the standards with the facility operator, a detailed
inspection of the facility to determine if the standards
are being met, an exit briefing to discuss the audit findings,
and the preparation of an Audit Report. The Auditor will
identify on the report whether each standard is met or there
are deficiencies, and will specify any corrective actions
needed to bring the facility into compliance. Audits are
conducted by progressions with practical experience.
and Technical Assistance Training and technical
assistance is available to members to help them comply with
the business licensing, environmental and safety standards.
Training may be offered at periodic training session, at
SCADA events such as their annual convention, and through
printed materials such as the California Dismantling magazine
and a weekly newsletter.
