For many years, RSK has been an Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment (IEMA) Q-Mark member, which recognises excellence in the delivery of environmental impact assessments (EIA). RSK supports colleagues through progression across the various IEMA professional membership grades recognising their professional competency in environmental and sustainability disciplines. In April, RSK successfully attained corporate IEMA membership supporting our work at a strategic level within the industry.
For the eighth year running, RSK has successfully joined the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Quality Mark Register. The scheme requires RSK to submit its published environmental statements for review by IEMA and to undergo an annual audit, which includes interviews with our staff. Our involvement is administered through RSK’s EIA, planning and design (EPD) team, but with contributions from all RSK staff involved in undertaking or contributing to EIAs.
Structural Soils (an RSK company) has carried out in-situ testing for as long as it has been involved in laboratory testing. However, over the last few years it has grown its service offerings, geographical coverage and staff numbers considerably. It now employs technicians in the South East (Tonbridge) and Scotland (Glasgow) and continues to grow in Bristol, Castleford and Hemel Hempstead.
Structural Soils, an RSK company, has had its fourth geotechnical laboratory, which is in Tonbridge, UK, officially accredited by UKAS.
