DescriptionAfter 30 years, the TPP often remains confusing for generators and CUPAs. As a key step in WW treatment and to reduce offsite haz waste disposal, its important that generators understand the TPP requirements and limitations.

Case studies and compliance requirements for generators operating under different tiers will also be reviewed.
