CIWM/WAMITAB: Complying with technical competence schemes during Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions

CIWM/WAMITAB will not regard failure to complete or pass assessments as being a failure to comply with the technical competence scheme until 1st January 2021.

 

CIWM/WAMITAB: Complying with technical competence schemes during Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions feat

According to recent information available at wamitab.org.uk, operators of permitted waste facilities relying on the CIWM/WAMITAB scheme to demonstrate Technical Competence are required to gain qualifications and pass assessments according to a timeframe set out in the scheme. Classroom based training and test centres required for some of these have limited availability due to the implementation of social distancing measures.

We expect candidates to try to book the relevant training and assessments in advance of when they are due but recognise that in some cases that may not be possible. We will not regard the failure to complete and pass either:

as being a failure to comply with the CIWM/WAMITAB competence scheme until 1 January 2021 provided that:

  • the candidate has made a booking for the earliest available date
  • the operator has notified their local regulatory officer
  • in the case of a continuing competence assessment, the operator has notified WAMITAB as well so that they can keep a database of affected candidates.

Where these circumstances arise in connection with an application for a permit, the applicant must still provide evidence of registration/booking for the appropriate qualification and/or training within their application as usual.
