There must be no possibility of Qualified Persons checking their own work. As such, any direct involvement in the initial stages of the project design excludes that individual from acting in the Qualified Person role on that project.
Once the Declaration is submitted, the Qualified Person role is finished and that person could go on to take a direct role in the management and execution of the project.
It is not recommended, nor desirable, to send a further copy of the Declaration to the local office of the Environment Agency.
The Environment Agency will manage and communicate decisions regarding audits etc. centrally.
