We issue permits which specify requirements to control pollution from certain industrial processes. The Environment Agency issues similar permits for larger processes such as power stations and large metal foundries.
We are responsible for Local Authority Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (LA IPPC). This covers:
1) Installations known as A2 installations (referred to as A(2) in the PPC Regulations)
2) Local authority Pollution Prevention and Control (LAPPC), which covers installations known as Part B installations.
If you feel your process may need a permit to operate, please visit our Environmental Permitting page or contact us directly for further advice and assistance in obtaining a permit.
These permits are available as a public register. To see local permits please view our Public Register of Environmental Permits (EPA Register).
