Industrial Pollution Control

Public Registers Public Registers
  • Environmental Protection Act, 1990 - Authorised Processes
  • Pollution Prevention and Control Act, 1999 - Permitted Installations
  • Regulation of Prescribed Industrial Processes - authorisations and permits
The Quality and Environment Section of Environment Directorate has the responsibility for regulating certain industrial processes that have the potential to pollute the air.

Authorisations issued under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 are starting to be phased out and replaced by permits under the Pollution Prevention and Control Act 1999 (PPCA).

The PPCA also integrates air pollution with water pollution, land contamination, energy usage and accident prevention for certain larger industrial sites.

The Environment Agency regulates the larger industries, which are known as Part A processes or A1 installations. Local authorities regulate smaller industries, which are known as Part B processes or Part A2 or B installations.
