Environmental permitting

Companies carrying out activities that could potentially cause emissions to air, land or water may need to hold an Environmental Permit under the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010.  If certain changes occur to the activity, or the company changes hand, then the permit may need to be varied or transferred.  If the activity ceases, then the permit will need to be surrendered.

Do I need an Environmental Permit?

To find out whether or not your company needs to hold, vary, transfer or surrender a permit please visit the DEFRA website.
