VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, January 9, 2023/ / -- STP ComplianceEHS (STP) and Specialty Technical Consultants (STC) announce the release of its recently updated EHS protocol for
Israel. This audit protocol, which covers relevant national EHS requirements. The regulatory date for the current release is August 2022

Leading companies around the world use EHS audit protocols to understand the scope of their EHS regulatory obligations and rapidly collect, share, archive, and export audit findings in a cost-effective manner. EHS audit protocols are prepared by STC in partnership with STP and continue to focus on those national (plus, in some cases, regional or provincial) EHS requirements that have site-specific applications for manufacturing operations. As a leading EHS management consulting firm with a global network of experienced EHS teaming partners, STC has in-depth knowledge and technical expertise of local/regional EHS requirements.


STP and STC maintain leading-edge EHS audit protocols for more than 50 jurisdictions. The protocol documents are written in English and are available in MS Word, Adobe Acrobat, and Excel formats, as well as through STP’s web-based portal or can be integrated into an existing company platform. Using the protocols’ custom templates and advanced functionality features, auditors can easily track audit findings and manage data over time to improve compliance, risk management, and safety performance. In addition, STP’s formatting is compatible with leading risk management and sustainability platform providers.

Highlights of selected legislation covered in the newly developed protocol include:

The Knesset, the legislature of Israel, started to legislate the Basic Laws of Israel on various topics in the 1950s. The Basic Laws are a collection of thirteen constitutional laws that deal with the formation and roles of the principal institutions of the State of Israel. The intent was for the Basic Laws to form chapters in a formal written constitution; however, this approach has been postponed. As such, Israel has an uncodified constitution consisting of material constitutional law (i.e., cases and precedents), common law, and the provisions of the original Basic Laws of Israel. The Knesset is unicameral and is responsible for passing all laws in Israel. It also elects the president and prime minister, approves the cabinet, and has oversight on the work of the government. There are checks and balances in place from the courts and local governments.


Israeli legislation can be accessed in the National Legislative Database, which is managed by the Knesset. The National Legislative Database includes both existing and new legislation, as well as amendments to existing legislation. The Database is available at Activity/Legislation/Laws/Pages/LawHome.aspx (last accessed in August 2022).

Alternatively, legislation can be accessed by searching the Nevo database, which is available at (last accessed in August 2022).


All legislation for Israel is only officially available in Hebrew.
