At Inteco Astur, we have a vocation for dissemination and training in complex areas, trying to simplify and explain the sometimes complicated environmental regulations, such as the regulations on Contaminated Soil.

As we are an ENAC Accredited Entity according to ISO 17020: 2012 for the evaluation of the quality of contaminated soils and associated groundwater, we have prepared an infographic to explain the general procedure that should be carried out for the investigation of soils and its different phases (which you can download in high quality to print):


In addition, if you have any doubts about the terminology we use, you can consult our Glossary of the ISO-17020 Standard.

*Note: general non-binding procedure, based on the different procedures consulted in the Autonomous Communities. For specific cases, please consult entidaddeinspeccion@intecoastur.com
