Third Party Reports Training

Reviewing third party reports is essential for ensuring technical robustness, legislative compliance and quality assurance.

This is one of a series of 5 one-day courses covering the fundamental subject matter relevant to the investigation, assessment and management of land contamination. The courses aim to improve knowledge of the subject matter and the application of this knowledge in the risk-based approach for the assessment and management of land contamination.  The courses in this series cover legislation and conceptual models, site characterisation, human-health risk assessment, remediation and risk management and reviewing 3rd Party reports.  These courses can be taken individually or in combination.

This is an introductory course suitable for new starters, those needing a refresher or for those managing contaminated land staff.

This course is of relevance to :

Regulatory and local authority staff involved with contaminated land issues
Problem holders and developers needing a more in-depth understanding of contaminated land issues
Anyone producing contaminated land reports
Anyone reviewing third party reports

The course will highlight:

• key points to look for when reviewing third party reports; and
• sources of information that can be used to assist in effective report writing and reviewing.

There will be several practical sessions throughout the day to practice the skills learned. Practical sessions involve reviewing hypothetical reports.
By the end of the course delegates should be better able to:

• evaluate the technical robustness of the third party reports; and

• ensure that all necessary aspects of the site investigation, risk assessment, and risk management processes are reported to an acceptable standard.
All delegates will be issued with a Certificate of Attendance which should be retained and used to provide evidence of CPD activity when required by employers or professional bodies
