The Quality Protocol sets out end of waste criteria for the production and use of aggregates from inert waste. It supersedes ‘Quality Protocol for the production of aggregates from inert waste’, revised edition (ISBN 1-84405-217-6). If the criteria set out are met, the resulting outputs will normally be regarded as having been fully recovered and to have ceased to be waste.
Producers and users are not obliged to comply with the Quality Protocol. If they do not, the aggregate will normally be considered to be waste and waste management controls will apply to its handling, transport and use.
This Quality Protocol was funded by Defra, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) as a business resource efficiency activity. It was developed by the Environment Agency and WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme) in consultation with Defra, the Welsh Government, industry and other regulatory stakeholders. The Quality Protocol is applicable in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It sets out the end of waste criteria for the production and use of aggregates from inert waste.
