Those private parties who are financially responsible under Massachusetts law for assessing and cleaning up confirmed and suspected hazardous waste sites must retain a licensed Hazardous Waste Site Cleanup Professional (commonly called a "Licensed Site Professional" or simply an "LSP") to oversee the assessment and cleanup work. The Board of Registration of Hazardous Waste Site Cleanup Professionals is an independent, 11-member board that licenses and regulates LSPs. The Board works to maintain high standards of practice and to protect public health, welfare, and the environment by establishing qualifications for licensure, administering a licensing exam, requiring that LSPs obtain continuing education, and investigating complaints against LSPs to ensure compliance with state laws, regulations and the Board's own rules of professional conduct.
