WAMITAB Risk tier table - Operator Competence Scheme

Waste Management Industry Training and Advisory Board WAMITAB

WAMITAB is an awarding organisation and charity that develops qualifications for those working in: waste management and recycling, cleaning and street cleansing, facilities management and parking.

 

See below extract taking from WAMITAB to include risk tier table. The risk tier table is primarily intended for new permit applications or to determine additional  competence arrangements for existing permitted facilities. It is applicable to facilities in England operating in accordance with the Environmental Permitting Regulations. Operators are advised to check with their Environmental Regulator (Environment Agency)  for confirmation that they will accept the qualification before registering with a centre. If you undertake a qualification covering more than one activity, and choose to change activities at a later date (e.g. you have completed MROC2 for end-of-life vehicles and are planning to move to a WEEE-ATF site), you will need to complete the appropriate Continuing Competence test for the new activity.

 

The information provided was taken directly from wamitab.org.uk in order to provide background information on the charitable organisation / awarding body and to provide informative information on the various permit types and qualifications required in order to be the technically competent manager for a said permitted waste facility.
