What is the Waste Facility Permit Holder Training?

This one day course is designed to explain in detail everything about waste facility permit authorisation.  All waste activities require either a waste licence, facility permit or a certificate of registration.  This course is designed to help operators understand the requirements of the authorisation and comply with it.  On the course we explain the legal basis for waste facility permitting and the processes involved in making a successful application for a site permit.


The course begins with a review of the waste management legislation relating to Waste Facility Permits and Certificates of Registration.  The course examines the process for applying for, managing and reviewing the permit. It provides clear guidance on the use of waste classification, waste testing and selecting appropriate EWC codes.  The course also looks at practical aspects of site management, the environmental issues typically found on sites and how to prepare for and deal with regulatory inspections.  We examine the issues associated with End of Waste and By Products and how these affect permit holders.  Standard permits are discussed and individual conditions examined in a systematic way.  Other associated waste regulations are covered.  The course concludes with details of the Annual Reporting system.

Who is this course for?

The holders of facility permits of certificates of registration or staff working on these facilities.  This can include managers or owners of the business or key employees who have important roles on the facility.  We offer a shorter ½ day more rudimentary course for site staff who require awareness of the waste facility permit or certificate of registration.
