The proposed use of an online submission for Approved Authorised Treatment Facilities (AATF) and Approved Exporters (AE) for the 2015 compliance period has been delayed by the Environment Agency and Natural Resources Wales because “a number of challenges emerged that meant we would have had to compromise on the quality/functionality of the system and not delivered the best solution for our customers”.
Applications will now be made in Wales via the existing WMP5 form dated March 2014. The Environment Agency has indicated that a new version of the form, that was originally intended to be part of the online system will be utilised. This form will be made available on the 15 October 2015.
The online application system will now be in place for the 2016 compliance period.
