Environmental legislation

Every business has a legal obligation to comply with the Resource Management Act 1991. Take Charge can help you understand your obligations and help you assess whether you are in compliance.

Compliance needs to be taken seriously by businesses. You are responsible for any pollution incident that may occur on your site. If you have a serious pollution incident, legal action may be taken against you. Take Charge will not protect you if a serious incident occurs, but it can help you prevent a serious incident from occurring in the first place.
