There have been major changes to the Approved Authorised Treatment Facility (AATF) application process which were communicated through the Environment Agency’s ‘Introduction to PRSD’ at the end of July.
Previously, applications for the next year’s compliance period were required to be made prior to 30th September to ensure that the AATF permission was obtained in time to start issuing evidence on 1st January. This is no longer the case and applications for the 2015 compliance period now need to be made before the 1st November 2014 via the Producer Responsibility and Shipment Database.
This system will be online on the 15 October 2014 giving applicants two and a half weeks to upload their applications. The same system is been rolled out in Wales and the deadlines are the same. This information has yet to be published on the government website but can be found in the Introduction to PRSD PDF.
