Information to support the Environmental Permitting Regulations (EPR) permit reviews for Large Combustion Plant (LCP)

Closed 16 Nov 2018

Opened 3 May 2018


The Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) requires EPR permits to be reviewed when the relevant Best Available Techniques Reference Document (BRef) for the sector is published. The Large Combustion Plant BRef has been published.

The Environment Agency is issuing Regulation 61 notices under EPR to initiate the permit review process. Hard copies of the Regulation 61 notice will be sent to the permitted site and the registered office for each site that we have identified as requiring a permit review under this BRef. Information to support the review is attached below

  • Best Available Techniques Conclusions
  • Reg 61 Notice (Template)
  • Reg 61 Spreadsheet
  • Interpretation Document (Working Document v1.1
