Environmental Permitting Regulations (England and Wales Regulations 2007)


The Environmental Permitting Regulations (EPR) came into force on 6 April 2008.

As a first step, they combine Pollution Prevention and Control (PPC) and Waste Management Licensing (WML). If you already have a PPC permit or a Waste Management Licence, it automatically became an Environmental Permit from 6 April 2008.

The Regulations provide a single, common, risk-based framework for permitting and compliance. They introduce the possibility of a single permit and regulator for some sites, and standard permits, which are easier to get.
