EPA Licensing & EIA
Any development which is seeking an IPC or Waste licence which has not previously been subject to an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is screened by the EPA to determine whether an IPC or Waste licence application should be made subject to an EIA.
This screening assesses the nature of the development in relation to EIA thresholds in Irish Planning and Development Acts and the Planning and Development Regulations and it assesses the significance of likely environmental impacts. The legislation relating to EIA during the EPA licensing process is based upon the European Union (Environmental Impact Assessment) (Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control) Regulations 2012S.I. No. 282 of 2012 and the European Union (Environmental Impact Assessment) (Waste) Regulations 2012 S.I. No. 283 of 2012.
