Compliance ratings for waste and installation permits
The compliance ratings dataset on data.gov.uk contains the compliance ratings for all waste and installation permits in 2018. We use compliance ratings to help assess the risks from a regulated facility. It helps us identify the operators and facilities that pose a higher risk to the environment and where we need to spend more time regulating and carrying out compliance assessments. Ratings A and B indicate good performance whilst bands D, E and F indicate poor performance.
The pollution inventory dataset on data.gov.uk contains information from the pollution inventory for each release type (to air, land and waste transfers off-site). The data is grouped by sector for the industrial activities we regulated in 2018.
The pollution incidents dataset provides information about incidents that met our category 1 and 2 impact criteria for those reported in 2018. These are the most serious environmental incidents we deal with.
