The updated Food and Drink sector BREF note BAT conclusions (BATc) were published on 4 December 2019. This has triggered an environmental permit review for the Food and Drink sector by the UK environmental regulators, the process for which is:

  • Regulator will write to each operator regarding the permit review.
  • Webinars on how to respond to the Regulation 61 notices will be held for Operators.
  • Regulation 61 notices will be sent to Operators containing a number of questions. There will be a 6-month deadline for Operators to respond to these notices.
  • Issue of Regulation 61 notices will be a phased process, with the higher priority subsectors being first to receive the notices.
  • All sites of the same company will be determined concurrently.

You must be compliant with the new emission limits within 4 years. If you are unable to meet the emission limits you can apply for a derogation, however this is a complex and time-consuming exercise which requires full justification as to why a derogation should be granted and there are no guarantees that the Regulator will accept the derogation request. Failure to comply with the updated emission limits after the 4-year period would be a breach of permit conditions and likely to result in enforcement action by the Regulator.

This session will provide an update on the permit review process and progress to date.
