Environmental Permitting Regulations

If a Company wants to carry out processes that may cause certain emissions to land, air or water they must apply for a permit to do so from either the Environment Agency or from us. The Environment Agency regulates industries with the greatest potential of causing pollution to land, air or water. We regulate industries with less potential to pollute the environment.

There are three separate, but linked, systems of pollution control:

  • Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC), which covers installations known as A(1) installations, which are regulated by the Environment Agency
  • Local authority Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (LA-IPPC) which covers installations known as A(2) installations, which are regulated by local authorities
  • Local authority Pollution Prevention and Control (LAPPC), which covers installations known as Part B installations, also regulated by local authorities
