Environmental permitting

Pollution from industrial installations in England and Wales has been controlled to some extent for over 150 years.

The Pollution Prevention and Control (England and Wales) Regulations 2000 (the "PPC Regulations") were introduced under the Pollution Prevention and Control Act 1999 in response to the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) Directive (96/61), and build on existing systems. The PPC Regulations gradually replaced the pollution control regime set up under Part I of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (EPA 1990), and the PPC Regulations were replaced in April 2008 by the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2007, and again replaced on 6 April 2010 by the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2010.  These have now been replaced by the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2016.
