End to the End of Waste Panel and Centralised Determination of Fire Prevention Plans

On 20th December the Environment Agency (EA) confirmed that their Definition of Waste Panel was to be shut down until further notice. This follows a suspension of the service in September. The EA does not currently not have a timescale for any further updates or when the outcome of the review will be known. The panel received enquiries from industry seeking clarification / decisions on what constitutes end of waste meaning a material would therefore fall outside the waste regulation framework.

Around the same time, the EA also announced that they are to end centralised decision making on Fire Prevention Plans

Regional teams will now pick up the role and have received training in doing assessments. The regional teams will work with the now disbanded central team over a 3 month transitional period. The current EA guidance on producing a Fire Prevention Plan can be found here. Plans are required for many operators seeking an Environmental Permit and for existing operators. The requirements extends to some Standard Rules Permits as well.
