Waste Management Licensing (Amendment) Regulation. SI 2203. Effective 9 October.
Section 74 Environmental Protection Act 1990 enables a waste regulation authority to decide whether a person is fit and proper to hold a waste management licence - one consideration being whether the management of the activities will be in the hands of a technically competent person.
Regulation 4 of the Waste Management Licensing Regulations 1994 provides that a person is technically competent in relation to a type of facility listed, if he holds one of the certificates awarded by the Waste Management Industry Training and Advisory Board specified in the regulations as being a relevant certificate of technical competence for that type of facility.
These amending regulations reclassify certain types of facility and the relevant certificates of competence for them. This is in consequence of the board's decision to award separate certificates in relation to bio-degradable waste on the one hand and clinical or special waste on the other, and no longer to award level 4 certificates in relation to special waste only. In addition, the range of relevant certificates for civic amenity sites is extended.
