Implementation of the EC Regulation on eco-management and audit (EMA) is now only one year off, but many of the most contentious issues remain unresolved. The UK's environmental management standard, BS7750, is still ensnared in debates over accreditation and certification arrangements, while arguments continue over the mutual compatibility of BS7750, EMA and the ISO9001 international standard. These uncertainties may discourage companies from entering the schemes - especially when combined with concerns that the potential benefits of certification are being oversold by some interested parties.
