Resource Conservation

The 2006 Amendments to the Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA) created alternative planning opportunities for companies subject to TURA that have completed a TUR Plan and two or more updates. One alternative is a plan to conserve resources. Once prepared, these alternative plans must be certified by TUR Planners who have been approved by MassDEP by earning additional TUR credits in the appropriate disciplines.

TURI provides training programs to meet DEP requirements and to enhance Planners' skills in the area of resource conservation, so that Planners can evaluate and certify these types of plans. Upon completion of the required training classes, the Planner submits an application to MassDEP, and if accepted, is eligible to certify RC Plans.

Visit the calendar to learn about upcoming opportunities to gain the credits required to apply for authorization to certify RC Plans.
