Who are SPANC?

They are the official body responsible for enforcing that prevailing laws are upheld with regard to the treatment of waste water. Officially known as “Service Public d’Assainissement Non Collectif” they are the only people who can organise a fosse inspection and issue “certificates of conformity” for waste water treatment systems.

They should also be able to conduct soil tests where required, advise on local installers and advise on the best treatment systems available. They are also obliged to advise you on how to remedy any faults their inspections may highlight.
