The term "compliance" refers to conduct that is consistent with specified legal and other requirements.

These include laws, acts, regulations, codes of practice, industry guidance and internal company policies. The alternative, unlawful conduct, can cause considerable reputational damage and lead to court proceedings affecting more than just market position.

Compliance is at the core of KMK Metals Recycling’s business model. As a unique industrial enterprise and local employer, we are aware of our significant responsibility towards our community, the environment, customers and business partners, as well as our employees.

In order to fulfil the essential and extensive responsibility of compliance, KMK Metals Recycling has appointed a dedicated Compliance Department who provide QEHS oversight to our operations and manage our WEEE facility certifications. The Compliance Department is the contact point for all queries related to compliance and is responsible for incorporating compliance into the company ethos.
