Reminder! Annual environmental monitoring data due in New Year

The year’s review of environmental monitoring data and assessment are due for submission to the Environment Agency or Natural Resources Wales by end of January with performance and pollution inventory data (for installation permits only) due end of February 2018.

The annual reviews required by certain environment permits cover significant air, water and waste emission releases for the previous 12 months.

Charles Thomas, Consultancy Director, Wiser Environment says: “We recommend that our clients start compiling data now if they haven’t already. With these reports due in less than four weeks after the holiday period, it doesn’t leave long for businesses to collate figures for the whole of 2017 and provide meaningful commentary on these.”

If you require assistance with compiling your data or submitting your report, please contact Wiser Environment on 01480 462 232.

The EA has updated its odour management plan guidance

The EA has updated its odour management plan guidance. Overall, the guidance outlines how operators must control and monitor emissions from their activities that may cause pollution.

Changes include clarifications regarding when the EA will want an odour management plan. They may request one during pre-application, determination, variation or at any point during the lifetime of your permit.

Also, Materials recycling and handle odorous inputs or reject streams and Intensive Farming have been added to the list of Activities that require an odour management plan.
