Hazardous Substances Management

Consistently improving the level of compliance certification provided to clients in an Industry that is rapidly increasing with technical complexity and regulation changes.

Some time ago I observed that the emphasis of the new regulations is becoming more about the certifier than the certified. That is not a good future. HSPNZ is our voice for change.
