Consultation description

The Environment Agency proposes to have a new standard rules environmental permit to cover the:

  • accumulation and disposal of radioactive materials
  • radioactive waste at sites with a radiation detection system

The new standard rules permit will be an efficient way of regulating for both operators and the Environment Agency, as well as protecting the environment from pollution.

We ask for your comments on the proposed new standard rule set and its risk assessment. We are also assessing the financial impacts of this proposal.

The responses from the consultation will be used to help develop the standard rule set. The aim is to publish the new standard rule set and risk assessment before the end of January 2018.
