Facility operators

All transitional and containment facilities must have an MPI-approved operator. Find out the requirements and how to get approval to become a facility operator.


Facility operators and accredited persons

All transitional and containment facilities must have an MPI-approved operator. The facility operator is the person who will have overall responsibility for the transitional or containment facility. A facility operator must have the authority to make changes at a facility when directed by MPI.

Facilities receiving containers must also have enough trained, accredited persons available to check containers.

Getting a facility operator approved

You can apply for approval of a new operator and a new facility at the same time (and using the same application for approval form).

We've created a step-by-step process for getting a new transitional facility operator approved, or for changing an approved operator.
