In this session we explore the common terminology used in permitting and recap on the definitions and legal concepts necessary to create permits and deal with the application process. The session will ensure an understanding of: the content of the EP regulations; notices (powers of entry, enforcement, provisions for serious pollution incidents) and statutory procedures.
During the day a number of worked examples will be used, based on PG3/1. In this presentation we explore the basic structure of the PG note and discuss the relevance of each specific areas for use in permitting. The session will ensure an understanding of how the guidance notes are framed; what they contain; what they apply to and more importantly what they don’t.
During this session we will look in detail at the application process, the information required in order to assess an application, the other information required to begin constructing a permit. The session ensures understanding of: information required; ‘thin applications’ (when and where to use them); duly making applications, consultation (including the PPD, and advertising); requisition for information and confidentiality.
During this presentation we look at several example permit conditions and consider them against appropriate standards, debating what is acceptable to include in a permit condition and what is not.
Building on the last 4 sessions, we will review a concrete batching plant permit, and provide a critique on the structure, layout and conditions. The exercise would ordinarily be used as an interactive session, but, due to the online nature, has been restructured into a presentation style.
If you have any comments or queries about the permit, please feel free to email emaq and a trainer will contact you to provide any additional clarity.
