  1. Updated aggregates from inert wastes: the task and finish group is set up and the revision process has started. Added tyre-derived rubber material to the list of completed quality protocol reviews. Added pulverised fuel ash and furnace bottom ash to the list of ongoing quality protocol reviews (review starting in December 2021).

  2. Added a section on the QP review for processed fuel oil. Removed the dates for reviews that have not yet started. Updated the 'Contact us' section to clarify that you should only apply to be part of a task and finish group when a QP needs to be revised.

  3. We have updated the progress made on the quality protocols.
