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.
