This resolution has been approved subsequent to Befesa Gestión de Residuos Industriales, Ajalvir Center, requesting it be declared a Collaborating Company of the Catchment Basin Bodies of the Ministry of the Environment, on July 6, 2004, and upon the Water Commissary of the Tajo Hydrographic Confederation having made a tour of inspection of the facilities.

During the tour of inspection some aspects were checked such as the fact that the facilities, laboratory equipment and material elements of the Ajalvir Center are suitable for carrying out sample taking activities, conservation, transport and analysis of the analytical parameters specified by the legislation in force for Group 2. Likewise, a check was made to ensure that the company’s workforce includes qualified technical personnel with sufficient knowledge to perform the activities indicated in the documentation provided.

On the other hand, emphasis was put on the company being vastly experienced in works and activities related to the analysis of industrial wastes, which is its main field of activity, as well as of urban wastewaters, effluent from treatment works, drinking water and sludge characterization. These are all activities mainly carried out for private companies and Town Councils.

Once the tour was made and analyzed, the request studied, and proven the fact that Befesa met the judicial-administrative requirements demanded by the Ministry to obtain the title, the Ministry resolved to award Befesa the Title of Suitability as a Collaborating Company of Catchment Basin Bodies in sewage spill control matters and it will be entered in the Special Registry of Collaborating Companies.
