Contaminated land 2007 - Making sense of continuous regulatory change 27 March, Earls Court Conference Centre, London, SW5. Ground Engineering conference exploring the latest developments in the contaminated land arena. Contaminated work is booming against continuous regulatory change, with developments constrained by uncertainty and unclear information from regulatory agencies and local authorities. This conference will give practical guidance on how to navigate the maze of often con icting guidance.
Chaired by Jan Hellings, director of the British Urban Regeneration Association (BURA), sessions include:
Clarifying the current situation regarding SGVs and CLEA and when guidelines will be completed - Sheena Engineer, Environment Agenc
The impact of regulatory changes - Clive Boyle, Environmental Industries Commission · Risk assessment - examining the new LQM/CIEH risk assessment criteria - Caroline McCaffrey, LQM · Development and experience in eld measurement of gas and vapour - Hugh Mallett, Buro Happold
Field analytical tools - optimising site investigation and remediation verication - Perry Guess, IPM-Net
The latest in land remediation - real world application development in the SABRE project - Phil Morgan, ESI · Applying the latest land remediation techniques - Nicola Harries, CL: AIRE
A look forward at the consequences of today's regulatory situation - Aidan Thomson, Barlow, Lyde & Gilbert
