Topics included:

·         understanding the changes

·         a new regime with a new purpose

·         the broad definition of “excess soil” and how it must be dealt with

·         the intensive record keeping and reporting requirements

·         the ‘beneficial purpose’ test and options for assessment, treatment and re-use

·         the critical importance of the ‘Project Leader’ – who will assume that role?

·         when can I pass my obligations on to another through contract?

·         the numerous exemptions – when might the Regulation not apply?

·         available resources to help you get ready.
