Environmental Permit Compliance Assessments 

Compliance Assessments are to ensure that you are adhering to all of the conditions and rules within both your Environmental Permits and Planning Applications. It is a great way to determine any non compliance's prior to an Environmental Agency Audit. 

The results of a compliance assessment are recorded on a Compliance Assessment Report. We provide the permit holder with a copy of the report and discuss any non compliance's raised. 

Non Compliance's may include: 

  • where a permit holder has not followed directly applicable legislation, for example the Duty of Care

  • those that relate directly to permit conditions

Compliance assessments vary in frequency, duration, detail and complexity. This depends on the type and scale of the activity and the likelihood of non-compliance. An audit may assess all or the majority of conditions within a permit. An inspection or desktop assessment may only focus on a few, specific conditions.

Environmental Permitting & Applications

​When your business activities have the potential to damage the environment, you may need an environmental permit.

  • Ensure your business has the correct permit  

  • Determine which permit is appropriate for your activities 

  • Receive application support 

  • Expert guidance during the application process 

  • Liaison service to ensure efficiency 

  • With the Environment Agency or regulatory body 

 

You’ll need a permit if you could: 

  • Pollute the air, water or land. 

  • Increase flood risk. 

  • Adversely affect land drainage. 

 

You are breaking the law if you operate without a permit when you should have one. To give you peace of mind that your business has the correct permits, our environmental consultants can: 

  • Identify the permits, discharge consent or exemptions required for your business activities and processes. 

  • Prepare and submit application forms and supporting documentation. 

  • Liaise with the Environment Agency (EA) or regulatory authority on your behalf and attend site meetings. 

  • Collate and produce a site condition report. 

  • Carry out risk assessments. 

  • Develop odour and noise management plans. 

  • Prepare Environment Agency Pollution Inventory Reporting. 

There are a number of different permits and, depending on your activity and the pollution risk, you need to apply to the Environment Agency or your local council. We can advise who you need to apply to and guide you through the entire application process, where you’ll need to demonstrate that you have the policies and procedures in place to protect the environment and comply with the conditions a permit will impose on you. 

Using our service delivered by a team of experienced environmental experts will ensure your business operates with the correct permit, allowing you to concentrate on your core activities.
