In March 2020, following the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), ENTRUST took appropriate and proportionate steps to ensure that we could carry on providing services to our stakeholders and regulatory assurance to HM Revenue & Customs.
In March 2020 we issued a guidance note on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) and Environmental Body (EB) obligations. This guidance note was reviewed and updated three times in 2020 and a further three times in 2021. All guidance notes are available on the right hand side of this page and through the links in the timeline below.
In March 2022 the Government set out their plan for 'living with COVID'. As always ENTRUST will follow Government advice and will keep all guidance under constant review. If EBs have any further questions in relation to COVID-19 and the LCF they should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
ENTRUST complies with advice and guidance issued by the UK Government in the document 'Working safely during COVID-19 in office and contact centres' (11 May 2020). We also confirm we have complied with the Government's guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19 in the office and you can view the confirmation certificate on the right hand side of this page.
