Permit Fact Sheet
The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) certifies Toxics Use Reduction (TUR) Planners. Once certified by MassDEP, TUR Planners may certify toxics use reduction plans for companies that are required to report under the Massachusetts Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA) and 310 CMR 50.00. TUR Planners may apply for General Practice (GP) certification or a Limited Practice (LP) certification. These instructions are for a LP certification.
LP planners may certify plans only for facilities owned and operated by their employers.
