Environmental Permitting Support

Practical support for organisations looking to ensure compliance with a new or existing environmental permit  


Our experienced team of consultants, that includes former regulators, can offer support to your organisation with how to apply for a new environmental permit as well as providing guidance on how you will be regulated so you understand what to expect.

We can also support with maintaining compliance with an existing permit. Our service is bespoke and based on your specific needs.


Services include: 

  • Support understanding the process for new permit applications, permit transfers, variations and surrenders
  • Environmental management systems
  • How to comply with your environmental permit 
  • Rectifying any non-compliances 
  • Gap analysis and compliance audits
  • Understanding how you will be regulated and what to expect from the regulator 
  • Liaison with the regulator olocal authority  


We found the service invaluable to ensure that all permit conditions were met before the regulatory visits. It allowed us to understand each condition within the permit, what to expect during the audit and to plan and implement all the advice the consultant gave us during the permitting support day. It was of great benefit to us and led to no permit non-conformances on our first official audit.

We identified that solvent use within the business needed further investigation to establish if we required an environmental permit. We put the problem to the consultant, and we received an answer and clear extraction of the legislation which explained why we didn’t need a permit at this point. We now have a clear understanding of the legislation, and through regular monitoring can ensure we remain within the law. The work carried out was clear, concise and worth every penny, and has saved the business time and money.

The training session was very informative. The training, explanations and documentation The Compliance People have provided for us has greatly increased our knowledge and awareness giving us a higher level of confidence to complete future PPC / SPRI submissions. I believe the training and documentation would be a major asset to anyone finding themselves in a similar situation.
