The Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016 provide a single regulatory framework covering:-

  •  Waste Management Licensing
  •  Pollution Prevention and Control
  •  Water Discharge Consenting
  •  Groundwater Authorisations, and
  •  Radioactive Substances Regulations

Local authorities regulate some of the facilities covered by these regulations, mostly to control emissions to air but also some processes with the potential to cause air, water and land pollution. They also have limited responsibilities relating to waste exemptions. Premises/processes falling under the regulations but not administered by local authorities will be controlled by The Environment Agency.
