Environmental permitting technical guidance for your activity.
Changes to EPR guidance
The Environment Agency is currently updating EPR guidance to meet Smarter guidance and Government digital service requirements. Some of the generic guidance documents referred to in these technical guides have been withdrawn and replaced with new versions.
These sector technical guides are still current and how the Environment Agency regulates you and your legal requirements have not changed.
Changes to generic guidance documents are as follows:
- the generic How to comply with your environmental permit has been withdrawn and replaced with new guides about developing a management system and controlling and monitoring emissions
- H1 risk assessment overview guidance and related annexes have been withdrawn and replaced with a new risk assessment overview guide with supporting specialist risk assessment guides
You need to read these generic guides in addition to your sector technical guidance.
