For the ISO14001:1996 clause 4.2.3, I am not sure whether or not our organization has met these requirements. We have the procedures to identify that : a) quarterly we go to environmental protection bureau to collect / update the environmental regulations and ongoing changes. b) all EMS regulations are reviewed and combined to Á¤a listÁ¬ with revise date which is communicated to all employees thought computer on-line system. c) the most important regulations are also summarized and classified by departments in the list so that the relevant department could find the requirements easily. d) those obsolete regulations are removed from the system. Are these good enough ? Because of resource constraint, I notice that we cannot verify all the EMS regulations (more than 100 and each has so many requirements) that are applied to our organization activities. Can anyone of you advise some feasible method to verify this key point ?

You seem to be doing what is needed to conform to the part of 4.3.3 that requires procedures to identify relevant legal reqts. What about "other requirements" (like industry codes)? No mention of these or how you track them.
While you don't mention it, regulatory reqts are also an improtant part of 4.2 (policy), 4.3.3 (obj & targets) & 4.5.1 (monitoring & measurement). Nonconformance in these areas is often more serious.

To verify applicability of legal reqts - there are lots of companies who will do that for you, often on a retainer that is much less costly than doing it yourself.
