Cardiff Council

Industrial pollution

We work proactively with industry to regulate the control of emissions into the environment. 


The Pollution Prevention and Control (England & Wales) Regulations 2000 (PPC Regs) introduced the concept of Integrated Pollution Prevention Control, which covered emissions to air, land and water as well as energy efficiency, waste management and accident prevention.


Part A1 Processes


The regulator for A1 Installations is the Environment Agency​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Link opens in a new window. Cardiff Council holds the Public Register (138kb PDF)​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Link opens in a new window for the processes in Cardiff which are regulated by the Environment Agency.


Part A2 & B Processes


We are the regulating authority for processes falling into Part A2 and Part B as categorised by the regulations.  

Activities that require a permit are defined by the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010 (EPR) and it is an offence to operate without one.  

Information on Environmental permitting.
