Environmental Permitting regulations

Article Business Practice Contaminated Land by

The Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations came into force on the 6th April 2008.  They merge Waste Management Licensing (WML) and Pollution Prevention and Control (PPC) regimes into a single system focussed on environmental outcomes and customer services.

In combining the regimes, the application forms and guidance have been simplified. The permitting options have also been improved by the introduction of standard permits.

All PCC permits and waste licences have automatically become environmental permits. Permits will not be re-issued and the conditions have not been changed, customers will be notified of this when they receive their subsistence invoice.
