Streamlining Regulatory Compliance: The Role of Environmental Management Systems (EMS) in Combustion Plant Compliance

In today’s environmentally conscious world, adherence to environmental regulations is a non-negotiable commitment. Whether you're running a Local Authority-permitted plant (Part B, Part A2) or navigating the more intricate terrain of Environment Agency regulations (MCPD, Part A1), one key element stands out as essential for compliance and reporting efficiency: the Environmental Management System (EMS).

Understanding Environmental Management Systems

An EMS is a structured framework designed to help businesses effectively monitor, manage and minimise their environmental impact. For facilities operating under environmental permits, an EMS is not just a best practice; it's a legal requirement for all combustion plant and anaerobic digestion site permits.

The Legal Mandate for EMS

Operating a permitted plant without an EMS in place is simply not an option. Not only must you acknowledge you need one as part of the application procedure, but it is also one of the first things listed in the operational conditions of your permit once it is issued. When regulatory officers conduct site audits, the key documents they'll request is a copy of the site permit and the accompanying EMS. Compliance with this aspect of environmental regulation is non-negotiable.
