>Standard Rules Permits

The Environment Agency have developed Standard Rules permits for activities that apply to certain waste types dealt with in a relatively consistent way so as to simplify the process of application which must now be done online.

Activities and wastes that fall outside the Standard Rules must be dealt with through either a Bespoke Permit or an Installation Permit (where more than 10 tonnes of hazardous waste are received per day).

Standard rules permits are listed here and below.

Anaerobic digestion including storing digestate

Water discharges

The annual permit fee (‘subsistence’) for standard water discharge permits starts from the date the permit is issued, so you should not apply for a permit significantly ahead of when it’s required.

As well as the 2 standard permits listed in this section, standard permit SR2008No27 (mobile plant for the treatment of soils and contaminated material, substances or products) can also apply to water discharges.

There are currently no standard rules permits for sewage effluent to ground or groundwater.
