This Regulation 'requires operators to obtain permits for some facilities, to register others as exempt and provides for ongoing supervision by regulators' extending to England and Wales.
The Regulation specifies nine classes of regulated facilities which require an Environmental Permit. These classes are
• an installation
• mobile plant (used to carry on either one of the Schedule 1 activities or a waste operation )
• a waste operation
• a mining waste operation
• a radioactive substances activity
• a water discharge activity
• a groundwater activity
• a small waste incineration plant
• a solvent emission activity
Certain businesses such as waste disposal facilities must hold permits to operate.
These replace waste management and PPC licences. These Regulations replace the system of waste management licensing in Part II of the EPA 1990 and the Waste Management Licensing Regulations 1994, and the system for permitting in the Pollution, Prevention and Control Regulations 2000, with a new system of environmental permitting in England and Wales. The principal offences under the Regulations are operating without a permit or in contravention of permit conditions, and failing to comply with enforcement related notices.
These regulations set out exemptions from the EPR for certain waste activities considered to be lower risk and not requiring a full permit.
D4.1 The company must hold a permit from the proper authority in order to operate within the requirements of the regulations.
