Defra has launched a short consultation, which closes 7th July 2014, on Reforming Environmental Permitting Regulations (EPR) Guidance.
Please use this consultation to tell Defra your views on the guidance they offer surrounding EPR which includes waste exemptions, standard permits and bespoke permits for the pig and poultry sector.
This is the industry's opportunity to stress to Defra how important the Environment Agency’s How To Comply document and surrounding guidance is to pig and poultry operators in helping them to meet the requirements of their permit.
Without this sector specific guidance operators may be expected to rely solely on the Bref (Best Available Techniques Reference Document).
The consultation can be found at the following Defra website.
