Document expiry date and SIC code

We aren’t too clear on the following: is having review and expiry dates on our policy documents, is that a must or is having them setting ourselves up for failure, should we have documents displayed past review date

In the past, we seem to have different SIC codes on our WTN from different suppliers. My question is should we have one SIC code as a company? Or does it differ with waste? Whatever our waste output per activity the core function of the company is the same. We are a manufacturer of Aluminum façade and soffit systems.

1. We aren’t too clear on the following: is having review and expiry dates on our policy documents, is that a must or is having them setting ourselves up for failure, should we have documents displayed past review date

Normally, organizations only include issuing date on their documents. I know that some economic sectors, like pharma, use the expiry dates on documents because some FDA’s requirements state that documents should be reviewed every X years. That way looking for a document with an expiry date is very easy to check if the revision was done or not.

2. In the past, we seem to have different SIC codes on our WTN from different suppliers. My question is should we have one SIC code as a company? Or does it differ with waste? Whatever our waste output per activity the core function of the company is the same. We are a manufacturer of Aluminum façade and soffit systems.

SIC codes provide a framework for collecting and presenting a large range of statistical data according to economic activity. So, co mpanies must have a SIC code and one SIC code is usually sufficient for most companies, but you may select up to four SIC codes to describe the nature of your company’s business activities. It is not unusual for companies more complex or specialized to have more than one SIC code.

SIC codes do not change according to waste streams. So, your WTN should be showing only one SIC code, unless your company has more than one and makes sense to differentiate waste streams per core business.
