Installations may change hands through normal business transactions and the Environmental Permitting Regulations allow for permits to be transferred either for the whole installation or for one or more parts of it.
Before an Environmental Permit can be wholly or partially transferred to another person, a joint application to transfer the Environmental Permit has to be made by both the existing and proposed permit holders. New operators must have the appropriate competence to run the installation in compliance with the conditions of the existing permit.
You can transfer all or part of your environmental permit to another operator by submitting a joint application with the new operator.
For a full transfer of Part B EPR Permit you can use our online application form.
This service requires an online payment; you will be taken to the secure payment facility upon submission of this form.
Please download and complete the appropriate Word or PDF version of the application form first from the options below. Once done, submit your completed application form and other relevant documentation.
Fees are required for the transfer of permits. The fees normally change annually so for this year's fees please view the fee information.
For a whole installation transfer if the Council are satisfied with the new operator’s competence and the correct fee has been received, the Council may either
Endorse the permit with the transferees details as the new operator or
Issue a new permit document
For a partial installation transfer if the Council are satisfied with the new operator’s competence and the correct fee has been received, the Council will issue a new permit to the transferee and an amended permit to the original operator.
