Compliance process

To ensure that the Landfill Tax Regulations are complied with we carry out compliance inspections on Environmental Bodies (EBs). These inspections ensure that Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) monies are spent compliantly and may take the form of a visit to the EB or project or a desktop review where a visit would not be cost effective. 

Those organisations which successfully meet the enrolment criteria and demonstrate that they are a fit and proper organisation to receive LCF monies will automatically be awarded a risk score based on a number of key risk indicators which are updated based on EBs activity and performance. 

The criteria for which we award a risk score includes, for example; amount of LCF funding you have received, amount of LCF monies you continue to hold, number of projects approved for your EB and any history of non-compliance. You can review our current risk model indicators in the document on the right hand side of this page.

This score partly determines how often we will be in contact with your organisation. The work planning allocations are compiled taking into account other general factors within your organisation, therefore if you wish to revoke from the scheme we may carry out an ‘exit’ visit prior to making a recommendation to our Board.
