Qualified Persons Information
A Qualified Person (QP) within the meaning of Section 5 of Ontario Regulation 153/04. QPs are professional geoscientists and professional engineers. A QP who is retained should be someone who can exercise professional judgement based on his or her experience in order to advise on appropriate reuse options for the excavated social or excess soil, and make these decisions based on appropriate analysis and characterization of the soil. The QP should use a risk-based approach and take into consideration the effects of loading associated with the concentration of individual contaminates in soil and the impacts on the pre-existing, ambient conditions at the site. This will likely require a QP who is qualified to prepare or supervise a risk assessment, as set out in Section 6 of Ontario Regulation 153/04. Depending upon the intended beneficial reuse of the excess soil, the QP may need to consult with others to make decisions on the appropriateness of the excess soil reuse.
