In 2009, the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) was signed into law which establishes a program for the licensing of LSRPs and an LSRP Board that issues licenses to qualified individuals to conduct the remediation of sites in New Jersey.
A Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) is defined in C58:10C (Site Remediation Reform Act) as an individual who is licensed by the Site Remediation Professional Licensing Board (SRPLB) pursuant to C.58:10C-7. Simply stated, LSRPs are individuals with demonstrated educational requirements and experience remediating sites in New Jersey, who have passed a proficiency examination administered by the SRPLB and have been licensed by the SRPLB to oversee remediation in New Jersey.
LSRPs are bound by a strict code of conduct outlined within C.58:10C-16 and N.J.A.C. 7:26I-6 (Regulations of the New Jersey Site Remediation Professional Licensing Board) and are required to perform remediation in accordance with applicable New Jersey statute and regulation. The LSRP’s highest priority is the protection of public health and safety and the environment.
Additional information about LSRPs can be obtained on the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, Site Remediation Program website here (https://www.state.nj.us/dep/srp), the SRPLB website here (https://www.nj.gov/lsrpboard), and the SRRA/LSRPA Fact Sheet here (https://njlsrpa.memberclicks.net/assets/docs/Fact-Sheet-01-21-2020.pdf).
