Accreditation

The Environmental Body (EB) Accreditation Scheme was introduced in 2007. Following the reduction in the size of the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) and due to low take up of the scheme by EBs ENTRUST held a consultation in January 2018 with accredited EBs to discuss the future of the scheme.

Following the consultation it was agreed by the ENTRUST Board to close the Accreditation Scheme from April 2018. There are transitional arrangements for those accredited EBs who expressed a case to retain certain elements of the scheme to minimise disruption to their existing processes.

You can read the final consultation report on the consultation page of the website.
