2. The document called PPs ESA Referrals - Waiver. This includes further detail about cases where there are administrative penalties.

3. The document called Abatement and Waiver Changes 36-03. This includes the forms the DWP use internally when a waiver is requested and describes the internal processes that should apply in such cases.
