Details

These datasets support the 2018 Regulating for people, the environment and growth report.

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.

Pollution inventory

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.

Pollution incidents

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.

Compliance assessment

The national compliance assessment and compliance classification scheme datasets on data.gov.uk contain details of compliance assessments and breaches of permits we recorded in 2018.

Enforcement action

The prosecutions dataset on data.gov.uk contains details of all prosecutions we carried out against companies. It covers all regimes we regulate. The dataset covers January 2000 to May 2019. Find out more about our position on enforcement and sanctions.

Waste crime

The waste crime summary dataset contains details of the numbers, types and activities associated with illegal waste sites, large-scale illegal dumping and illegal waste exports. The data covers each financial year from 2009 (where available) to the end of March 2019.

The waste investigations dataset on data.gov.uk contains information about our waste crime investigation work and outcomes. The dataset covers January 1997 to March 2019.

The illegal dumping incidents dataset on data.gov.uk contains all incidents of illegal dumping (fly-tipping) reported to us. Illegal dumping means the illegal deposit of liquid or solid waste on land, not covered by a permit or exemption. The dataset covers January 2011 to March 2019.
