Approved Professionals

A number of specially qualified and experienced professional biologists, chemists, geoscientists, agrologists and engineers have been appointed by the Director of Waste Management to the Roster of Approved Professionals. Under the Environmental Management Act, ministry officials may issue, based on the recommendation of these contaminated sites approved professionals, a contaminated sites legal instrument such as a Certificate of Compliance, without review. Since November 1, 2004 the ministry has required that applications for a number of services for low and moderate risk sites be made by an approved professional.
