Closed 21 Dec 2018

Opened 23 Nov 2018


The Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016 allow us to offer standard permits to reduce the administrative burden on business whilst maintaining environmental standards. They are based on sets of standard rules that we can apply widely.

This consultation proposes a revision to a standard rule set SR2018 No9 to allow secondary abatement for tranche B specified generators.
