Waste returns and TCM - Q2 2019 is fast approaching

As of 7th April 2019, environmental permits are subject to a condition that the operator must periodically provide the EA with information demonstrating the operators TCM (Technically Competent Manager) compliance with CIWM/WAMITAB or Competence Management System. The change in regs was brought in to, essentially, improve compliance and standards across the industry.

The means by which the EA require this information is through the quarterly waste returns.  As of Q2 2019 (the deadline for submission being 31 July 2019) TCM information will be required to be submitted.  The EA have confirmed they will be sending operators an email with a link to the new form at the beginning of July and will be updating the forms on their website at the same time so keep an eye out for it.

If you are in any doubt as to whether your TCM cover is sufficient or not  - now is the time to get it sorted.
