Competence Management System

The Competence Management System has been approved by Defra and Welsh Government as a scheme by which permit holders under the Environmental Permitting Regulations can demonstrate technical competence.

The scheme enables operators to demonstrate technically competent management of permitted activities by establishing and maintaining a competence management system that is independently certificated as meeting the requirements of the Standard.  Individual competence remains a key component with each employee’s having the relevant technical competences required to carry out their role. The scheme allows operators to organise their resources more effectively whilst deploying them in a way that ensures the site operation is technically competence at all times. The Competence Management System complements and embeds with existing management systems – enabling systemic approach to competence.
