About WIMS Daily
Keeping on top of important environmental issues, regulatory and compliance information you need can be a difficult and time consuming task. At the same time, you can't run your business or advise your clients based on second or third hand, or outdated information. Most newsletters and media outlets fall short in providing you with the the sources, and getting directly to the heart of the information. That's what we do -- we try to take you directly to the sources of the information and provide you with the contacts and connections you need. And, we do it every business day; as the information, news and facts unfold.
We monitor hundreds of sources every day for new information -- U.S. EPA websites, other Federal and state agencies, trade associations and organizations, environmental listservs, the White House, Congress, the courts, the national media and more. In Michigan we also track MDEQ, the Michigan Legislature, all environmental legislation and all other State environmental matters.
We've been providing national and state environmental information Email services since since 1995 (when Email and the Internet were more of a novelty) and more conventional hardcopy newsletter services since 1980. We have perfected the art of monitoring news and information sources covering air, water, solid and hazardous waste, remediation, pollution control and prevention, sustainability and other environmental issues that consultants, facility and plant operators, attorneys professional managers and government officials must monitor and keep track of.
We have combined several of our tried and tested services to develop this daily electronic information service specifically designed to assist busy environmental managers, consultants and attorneys in meeting their responsibilities to stay current on environmental policy and regulatory development. The service is known as WIMS Daily.
Each business day, WIMS Daily delivers to you a concise summary of the days news, information and events. You can quickly scan the day's list of activities and information and focus directly on the items of greatest interest to you. Each featured item contains the active hyperlinks that take you directly to the source of the information. No longer do you have to rely on second and third-hand accounts; or a reporters interpretation of what happened. Sometimes, we do refer you to conventional news media coverage of important and timely events if other more direct sources are not available. However, we carefully review such sources and try to direct you to the best and most informative articles. Also, we attempt to follow-up with subsequent linkages to the direct sources as they become available.
Assisting In Your EMS Compliance Program
According to the Commission for Environmental Cooperation a company's
ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) should,
procedures for anticipating changes to environmental requirements—including
new requirements that may apply as a result of changes in
operations—and incorporating these changes into the EMS...
Environmental requirements include statutes, regulations, permits,
Additionally, Part 4.3.2 of the ISO 14001 environmental standard requires: "The organization shall establish and maintain a procedure to identify and have access to legal and other requirements to which the organization subscribes, that are applicable to the environmental aspects of its activities, products or services."
Providing a timely and reliable source for anticipating regulatory change is one of the reasons we developed WIMS Daily... Another reason is that we felt there was a need for a high quality, timely, and yet affordable environmental information service, that focuses less on politics, opinions and speculation; and more on the "nuts & bolts" of regulatory trends and guidance information and connects the user directly to the hard documentation they need. So, if you need more facts and figures; and less editorial commentary -- WIMS Daily could be you answer.
WIMS Daily will keep you up to date on major environmental policy issues, reports and guidance information, regulations and funding opportunities on a daily basis. Our daily summary of events will link you directly to the news releases, the documents, the full-text regulations -- the actual source documents and contact information you need for further follow-up.
