At OCA Global, we rely on our professional team, the best in the sector, and we organise our services and resources to meet your demands. As a highly qualified independent inspection body with a global presence, we guarantee the quality and efficiency of all our inspection services anywhere in the world.
Inspection is necessary in most projects and products to guarantee the highest standards of quality and safety in each stage of the process. Through our regulatory inspection services, we help our clients to reduce risks and to comply with the necessary regulatory requirements in the different regions and existing markets.
Inspections of chemical products storage are carried out in order to verify the safety of these and to detect possible deficiencies that may occur as a result of inadequate maintenance or deterioration caused by the passage of time, which ages the materials used.
Therefore, with these inspections, what is sought at all times is to increase existing safety levels and reduce the causes that may generate an accident due to poor state of the installations.
These inspections are obligatory since the entry into force of the applicable regulation, and they should be performed every 5 years after their commissioning.
- Royal Decree 656/2017
All machines are currently subject to strict safety standards that they must comply both at EU and national level. The latter group includes the regulations that are subject of this procedure: safety interventions in machines as work equipment in use.
With a specific Royal Decree aimed at safeguarding safety and health in relation to the work equipment made available to workers, the cycle can be considered as complete and closed – as either through specific regulations or through labour regulations, work equipment (understood as machines) must be safe. OCA Global can offer its services for their certification.
- Royal Decree 1215/97
At present there are many city councils and autonomous communities that have regulated in their municipal ordinances the granting of planning permissions and activity licenses through collaborating entities in order to expedite the processing of these – such is the case of Madrid City Council and the Valencian Community.
OCA Global is authorised by Madrid City Council to act as ECU in the licensing of previous communication activities, implementation or modification of activities.
Our collaboration with Madrid City Council is materialised through the following actions:
- Verification of the content projected by the applicant for an urban planning license, which must be in accordance with the urban planning order, in its technical criteria, and in the subsequent certification or accreditation when issuing the certificate of conformity.
- Periodic control, to which the holders of the activities are obliged to submit themselves, without prejudice to the corresponding controls that municipal services will carry out directly.
On the other hand, the Valencian Community has authorised us to carry out the granting of licenses for the opening of public establishments and temporary or portable facilities, as well as the granting of those premises that perform an activity that requires an Environmental License, such as workshops, hotels, gas stations, etc.
