The Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) is delighted to present this consultation for amending options for the assessment of technical competence under the Northern Ireland Waste Management Licensing and Permitting Regime and look forward to hearing your views.
The purpose of this consultation is to consult upon proposed amendments to the Waste Management Licensing Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2003 in order to update the options available to those who need to comply with the technical competence element of the Fit and Proper Person test. The consultation document:
- outlines the Department’s proposal to add EU Skills as an additional accredited provider of assurance of technical competence in Northern Ireland;
- seeks views on this proposal, and
- in addition, seeks views on whether there are any other potential organisations which could act as assessors of technical competence in Northern Ireland for the purposes of waste management licensing and/or permitting.
