Environmental Permitting and Regulatory Compliance

Environmental regulation is continually evolving and with it, the requirements on industry are ever growing. Keeping track can be time consuming.

What is Required?

Understanding the implications of the latest regulations, and making applications to obtain or vary permits can take significant time and resources. Even Companies with a dedicated environmental management team may require assistance. When considering the requirements of the Environmental Permitting Regulations for example, the fundamental requirement is for industry to demonstrate that the Best Available Techniques (BAT) are being applied. However in order to do this, the following information is required to make an application:

  • Detailed assessments of emissions to air, land and water and their resultant impacts;
  • Details on the raw materials used by the process, and how the use of hazardous substances is avoided or minimised;
  • Methods to minimise, re-use or recover waste;
  • Information on effective environmental management techniques;
  • An assessment of noise and vibration from the process;
  • Energy efficiency measures;
  • Accident prevention techniques; and
  • An assessment of the condition of the site (land, surface waters and ground waters).

Focus On:

The following documents provide a focus on the requirements of the new BAT Conclusions documents and Permitting for Medium Combustion Plant and Specified Generators.
