ACTIVITIES CRITICAL FOR FINAL RESULT OF SOIL WORK

  • fieldwork, including sampling

  • laboratory analyses

  • environmental supervision of site remediation

  • site remediation

  • handling of soil material and sludge (exceptions!)

  • certification

  • installation and inspection of non-permeable floors

    → all formally defined as critical activities


Principle of the Dutch structure

Critical activities:

  • to be performed by licensed organisations ONLYstatutory requirements

  • according to relevant instructions ONLYprivate quality assurance documents

    Structure requires close public-private cooperation


Basic rule for authorities

Dismiss ANY application for a disposition if the application contains data supplied by non-licensed persons or organisations


BASIC RULES FOR CONSULTANTS, CONTRACTORS

Carry out formally defined critical activities:

  • while licensed ONLY

  • by persons mentioned on the license ONLY

  • according to relevant (privately maintained)instructions ONLY


Focus on: integrity

  • no activities on objects on which organisationholds rights

  • exception: activities can be carried out by part ofthe organisation that:

    • has no financial interest in the results

    • is part of a different managerial responsibility

    • is managed directly by another manager

  • no activities on objects with which organisationhas organisational, financial or legal ties


FOCUS ON: QUALITY FOR CONSULTANTS, CONTRACTORS

  • certification* is requirement for license

  • private protocols basis for certification

    • organisational requirements: based onISO 9001:2006

    • technical requirements: often in Standards

    • competence requirements

  • certifying body has to be licensed itself

    * or accreditation, depending on activity


FOCUS ON: QUALITY FOR THE SOIL AUTHORITIES

  • private protocols basis for implementation ofinternal quality

    • organisational requirements: based onISO 9001:2006

    • competence requirements

  • peer review


PUBLIC-PRIVATE COOPERATION

  • Standardising bodies: technical requirements

  • SIKB: certification and accreditation schemes

  • Certifying bodies: certification

  • Soil+: licensing

  • Ministry of VROM: statutory regulation


Discussion on the presented structure

  • why the public participation?

    • regulation driven market

    • positively identified integrity problems

  • why the private participation?

    • more flexible and dynamiceasier implementation of technological developments

    • market involvementuse of the practical knowledge in the market
