Changes to Permits – IED Update

Do you have an installation permit or an exemption? We will be changing the way we permit and who we permit as a result of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED).

On 7 January 2014 the IED will apply to all installation permits. Some waste activities that currently do not need a permit may need one in the future, you will need to start the process of applying for one later next year.

We will write to you by October 2013 to help you identify activities that may be affected by these changes. We will provide further guidance and will include a questionnaire for you to complete, this will help us to answer any specific permit application queries that may arise.
