Guidance book for landfill inspections (revised version 2016)

As an inspection at a landfill has to cover different subjects. Based on IMPEL’s project on Landfills, the inspection team decided to choose certain subjects to focus on for this guidance, namely:
(1) Criteria and procedures for the acceptance of waste.
(2) Gas control.
(3) Protection of soil and water (underground water).
(4) Water control and leach ate management.

This guidance contains for each of the above mentioned subjects a short description, including the requirements in the Landfill Directive regarding this activity. Secondly reference is given to (know) existing guidance and tools in EU member states.
