Joint Industry and Government Slurry Management and Storage Project

DEFRA has published the report of the joint industry and Government slurry management and storage project, which reviewed the existing regulatory framework and makes recommendations for improvements. The project was commissioned by Ministers for the industry and DEFRA to work together to see how improvements to regulations could be made. The TFA has been part of the project which has looked at areas including Closed Periods, Capital works, Advice and Enforcement.  The report is likely to be followed by new draft Regulations for the storage of silage, slurry and agricultural fuel oil to replace the existing SSAFO Regulations and a formal consultation period.
