Waste Management


It’s not only businesses in the waste management industrial sector that must continually review and resource improvements to their operations and management systems in order to remain compliant with legislation, but any business that produces waste (particularly hazardous waste) is obligated to ensure it controls its in-house waste matters correctly and compliantly.


The following services can be extended, to whatever level required; i.e. part-time assistance and support to complete project development and delivery:

  • Facility compliance checks

    Licenced or permitted waste facilities must be operated in compliance with their PPC / Environmental permit or Waste Management Licence. Independent auditing services are available and Gap-analysis reports can be produced to ensure your business is operating in a compliant manner.

  • Downstream compliance audits – your waste handlers

    Your Duty of care extends to taking all reasonable precautions that your waste is transported by a registered carrier directly to a transfer or disposal facility that is appropriately licenced or permitted to accept, store and transfer or treat it. Downstream ‘Supplier’ auditing is an effective measure to ensure that your waste is being dealt with correctly and legally.

  • Authoring bespoke Environmental Management System documentation and procedures

    Waste Management licenses and permits usually require the holder to underpin them with operational procedures that can vary from written instructions and other report forms and documentation, to full-blown Environmental Management Systems (not necessarily ISO14001). Any of these requirements can be supplied, using our authoring service, tailored to your business’s waste management activities and implemented with maintenance and user training if required.

  • Technically Competent Manager provision (CoTC holder for site attendance purposes)

    It is a legal requirement for waste management transfer or treatment facilities to be attended by a Technically Competent Manager (TCM), that is, a person holding a Certificate of Technical Competence (CoTC) at the appropriate level – usually level 4. The level of TCM attendance is calculated from the complexity of the site and its total weekly operational hours. Most sites require more than one TCM. In the event of a TCM shortfall, e.g. medium to long term loss of a member of staff due to illness, etc. a ‘stand in’ can be supplied, to maintain your legal obligation.

  • WAMITAB Waste Management QCF awards – Training and assessment

    In the event of your organisation requiring extra TCM’s, this can be provided using our excellent training / mentoring and assessment service, where your chosen employee/s are taken through the WAMITAB waste management award structure by an experienced and qualified QCF Assessor. This used to be known as the NVQ route to qualification, but has now been superseded by the Quality Credit Framework (QCF) system. See the testimonials below.

 

Testimonials

I have known Chris Williamson since 2006 and he has provided environmental & waste advice to CSG on an ongoing basis since 2011. His range of consultancy services are extremely diverse including waste treatment process design & build, project finance models, business plans, joint venture agreements, planning applications, permit applications, appeals, regulatory disputes, commercial dispute resolution, End of Waste applications, quasi legal advice, tied oil schemes, new initiatives etc. I have used most, if not all of these services over the past five years to the benefit of the company so I would highly recommend Chris to any organisation requiring expert environmental support and advice in the waste and industrial sectors.

As a specialist solicitor engaged in all types of regulatory, contractual, advisory, due diligence and litigation work in the fields of waste, pollution and industrial law, I have worked with Chris Williamson many times, and have found his technical and commercial acumen in these areas to be absolutely indispensable. Whether (for example) challenging government actions or framing difficult and highly specialist ‘end of waste’ cases, Chris’ many years of in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience of commercial industrial processes and the critical nitty-gritty of practical chemistry, are in my experience an essential part of a successful legal or regulatory process – no more so than when he drove the technical agenda (and heavily influenced the legal strategy) that won the groundbreaking OSS v Environment Agency end of waste ruling in the Court of Appeal. I unhesitatingly recommend him to lawyers and commercial operators working in this area.
