The CIWM/WAMITAB Operator Competence Scheme (sometimes known as a “WAMITAB” or CoTC) is designed to allow permitted waste facilities in England and Wales to demonstrate they employ technically competent people with the knowledge and skills to ensure waste sites comply with the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations. There are two parts to the scheme: Primary Competence (when the technically competent person completes the qualification, units and/or training programme(s) required to manage their waste site) and Continuing Competence (when the technically competent person undertakes a test every two years to demonstrate they have kept up to date with industry changes).
