Environmental permit competence requirements. Changes to technically competent manager attendance – second consultation

Closed 14 Dec 2023

Opened 19 Oct 2023


Operators applying for an environmental permit for a ‘relevant waste operation’ must be members of (and comply with) a government approved technical competency scheme. Most existing waste environmental permit holders must also comply with a government approved technical competency scheme through the conditions in their permits.

In this consultation we are asking for your views on the details of the preferred approach for calculating technically competent manager (TCM) attendance and other rules associated with the attendance requirements and proposed guidance.

This is your opportunity to make sure that revisions to the attendance requirements work for you and your industry to protect the environment and human health.
