Inspection Findings

A draft compliance report is issued after every compliance review. Compliance reports detail appropriate recommendations to correct any identified breaches in the Landfill Tax Regulations 1996 (Regulations) or to make suggestions to improve an Environmental Body's (EB's) procedures and internal controls.

EBs are invited to provide comments on our draft findings within 28 days of issuing the draft report. The EB response should explain what actions an EB plans to introduce to address any compliance issues identified during the inspection and a timescale for their implementation.

All responses are reviewed by ENTRUST management to ensure the issues identified within reports have been adequately addressed. A final report will then be issued to the EB to formally conclude the compliance review process.

In order to assist EBs to comply with the Regulations we publish a quarterly summary of the findings of our compliance inspections and the actions taken by EBs to address the issues raised. The summary includes;

  • A breakdown of the number of recommendations made during the year to date;
  • Analysis of the recommendations raised;
  • A summary of the findings; and
  • The corrections made by EBs.
