Details

The quality protocol sets out end of waste criteria for the production and use of aggregates from inert waste.

If the criteria are met, the aggregates will normally be regarded as having been fully recovered and to have ceased to be waste.

A quality protocol identifies the point at which waste, having been fully recovered, may be regarded as a non-waste product that can be used in specified markets, without the need for waste management controls. Quality protocols have been produced for a range of materials.
