ENTRUST has a statutory responsibility to ensure Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) monies are spent compliantly under the Terms of Approval with HMRC and the Landfill Tax Regulations 1996 (Regulations). Following feedback from stakeholders in 2016/2017, we consulted on the operation of our compliance risk model between May 2017 and July 2017.
As part of this consultation, we ran a sounding board event on 23 May 2017, which was attended by representatives of eight Environmental Bodies (EBs) and a member of the ENTRUST Board. Further meetings were held with EBs who were not able to attend the event. The presentation slides used at the event, along with feedback from EBs were published on the ENTRUST website on 30 May 2017 and we requested that EBs should provide any further comments they had regarding the model to us by 9 June 2017.
After taking into consideration the feedback from stakeholders, recommendations to improve the operation and transparency of the risk model were approved by the ENTRUST Board and published on the ENTRUST website on 21 July 2017. You can read further information including the detailed recommendations on our previous news item here.
As an open and transparent regulator the updated risk model indicators are available to read on the Compliance Process page of our website. You can also download the document on the right hand of this page.
