Environment permit: business consulting
Could your activities potentially impact the environment or health and safety? If so, you will need to apply for a permit in order to comply with various environmental regulations. We will guide you through the process and of obtaining your permit.
What is an environment permit?
An environment permit is an administrative authorisation which obliges an independent person, private individual, trader, family or industrial business to apply certain measures in order to ensure the safety of their neighbours or people accessing the building, to limit any potential disturbance caused by these buildings and to preserve the quality of the environment.
This may involve, for example, ensuring a certain level of noise or the maximum concentration of a certain product in the air are not exceeded.
Installations subject to environmental permits, referred to as classified installations, are divided into six classes depending on their nature and the extent of the danger they may cause.
As a general rule, you only submit one environment permit application (class 1A, 1B, 1D or 2, or one statement (1C or 3) with the most dangerous installation determining the class. To determine the classified installations linked to your line of business, you can use the easyPermit tool.
