Title: National Centre for Toxic and Persistent Substances : business case
Author: National Rivers Authority Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
The NRA is tasked to help achieve the requirements of International Agreements from the North Sea Conference, the Paris Commission, and from Directives issued by the European Commission. These commitments overlap because they involve nutrients and Toxic and Persistent Substances. Further duties on these matters stem from the Water Resources Act 1991. This report was prepared by Anglian Region following a decision by the Executive Group to pursue a recommendation of the Chief Scientist that a National Centre should be set up to meet current and future commitments for Toxic and Persistent Substances. The Corporate Plan of 1993/4 identifies the development of the Centre in Anglian Region as a key action which will improve the efficiency of the NRA. The report recommends a Centre which will integrate National and Regional requirements and produce recommendations for strategy. The implementation of strategy and its incorporation into Catchment Management would be monitored by the Centre. The Centre would be run by a Project Board.
