About Jessica Ball Associates
An independent consulting agency
Jessica Ball Associates is an independent consulting agency owned and operated by Jessica Ball. With 25 years of experience in the waste industry, Jessica delivers Technically Competent Management (TCM) cover for permitted waste facilities operating under the CIWM/WAMITAB scheme across the south and southwest of the UK.
TCM/COTC cover is primarily aimed at permitted sites looking for ongoing cover until they’ve gained their Primary Competence qualification or passed their Continuing Competence assessment. But TCM/COTC cover can also be supplied to those sites on a temporary, fixed-term basis for sickness or holiday relief.
In addition to permitted site TCM/COTC cover, our associated services – including technical and regulatory advice and support, guidance on compliance and non-compliance issues, and bite-sized informal training on waste management topics – are available for all waste producers, carriers, brokers, dealers, and site operators. Collectively, this is aimed at helping site managers better understand and meet their on-site technical competence requirements.
Alongside my full COTC Level 4 certification for TCM/COTC cover and associated services, I also hold Assessor and Verifier qualifications.
Working through registered Wamitab centres, I deliver training and assessment of managers of waste facilities (transfer, treatment, incineration/thermal treatment, end-of-life vehicles, and metal recycling, landspreading, and landfill operations) to comply with the statutory competence scheme. I’ve also assessed waste operatives in a variety of other sectors including industry, healthcare, municipal collection, facilities management, and cleansing.
I’m also a Chartered Waste Manager (MCIWM) and a member of the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA) as well as being a Chartered Chemist and member of the Royal Society of Chemistry (CChem MRSC).
Jessica Ball Associates has extensive knowledge and experience working across key sectors in the environmental compliance and waste management industry in the United Kingdom.
