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?

This Practice Note considers the procedures that apply in determining whether to grant an environmental permit under Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016 (EPR 2016), SI 2016/1154 and the conditions that should apply. It also covers the procedure for making an appeal against a decision. For more information on the EPR 2016, see Practice Notes: Environmental Permitting Regulations 2016—permits, applications and exemptions and Environmental Permitting Regulations 2016—enforcement, offences and civil sanctions.
