Next, click on the magnifying glass in the Permission site box and choose the relevant site. You can also search for the site by permission ID or name by using the search bar.

Tip: You can use asterisk to search for a partial name or phrase. For example, *inc will search for 'incineration on land' and 'incineration at sea'.

Selecting 'yes' flags that the waste consignment has been placed in temporary isolation. Refer to permission condition PER_WM1 for more information.
