Standard Rules Environment Agency Permit

Paul Downing

You may need a standard rules Environment Agency permit if your industrial or manufacturing business is regulated under the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2016.

A standard rules permit is just that, a permit with standard rules. You need to decide if you can comply with them before you apply. If you cannot comply then you may need to apply for a “bespoke” environmental permit. A bespoke permit is particular to what  volumes and types of waste you want to treat. You will of course pay more for this type of tailored permit.

Standard Rules Environment Agency Permit

A standard rules permit is easier to apply for and comply with. You should always see if your business can operate within one of these permits first. It isn’t always possible of course as your business may be located next to a SSSI, or nature reserve. In this case the initial conservation screen that you complete will show that you are not eligible to apply for a standard rules Environment Agency permit.

A list of standard rules permits can be found on the EA website.  There are a bewildering array of permit available for all types of businesses. You need to read each carefully before you apply. You will need to supply risk assessments, management system procedures, site plans, drainage plans & WAMITAB qualifications. For combustible waste fire prevention plans depending on your industry type.
