Coronavirus (COVID-19): To help businesses cope with the disruption caused by Coronavirus, COVID-19, the Environment Agency (EA) has published a series of temporary COVID-19 Regulatory Position Statements (RPSs). COVID-19 RPSs are intended to minimise risks to the environment and human health where compliance with certain regulatory requirements is not possible due to COVID-19. They also cover specific circumstances where the EA have temporarily amended normal regulatory requirements. COVID-19 RPSs have been issued in several sectors including waste management, water industry and agriculture. Each COVID-19 RPS sets out the circumstances in which it applies and the conditions that must be complied with. If the conditions are complied with, including requirements to notify the EA or to obtain approval to use the COVID-19 RPS, then the EA will not normally take enforcement action. For more information on COVID-19 RPSs, see Q&A: What does coronavirus (COVID-19) mean for environmental compliance in areas such as environmental permitting?
