Title: Compliance audit of Lanstar Ltd
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
A compliance audit of Lanstar Ltd was undertaken by the Environment Agency on Monday 20 and Tuesday 21 April 1998. The objective of the audit was to measure compliance with recently modified Waste Management Licence conditions. In general terms, the audit team were impressed by the diversity of treatment processes on site and the dedication of the company to invest in, and develop, effective treatment processes. Aside from a few minor criticisms, reception procedures, waste sampling and analytical work were all carried out effectively by competent staff. However, the audit did uncover problems with regard to waste storage, site infrastructure, and environmental monitoring and controls. Timescales for the implementation of recommendations have been discussed with the licence holder and are detailed within this report. The majority of noncompliance is to be addressed through the service of enforcement notices under Section 42(5) of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
