I am getting ready for our stage 1 audit next week. The question I have is "Does the system require that you adhere to all legal requirements or just have a system to identify your legal requirements". Our company hired a environmental specialist to help us identify requirements. He came up with stuff that we had no idea we would have to comply with. Some of it will take months to finish since I am the only one working on it. Will this satisfy the auditor in that we have set dates to comply and show continual improvement. The way I see the standard, we must only identify and evaluate our compliance.
