Under the current Environmental Protection Act, the operation of installations listed in the regulation on types of installations that may cause significant pollution of individual natural elements or the environment as a whole requires an integrated permit. These installations also require the preparation of a surface pollution risk analysis or an initial report (this provision has been in force since 2016 on how to conduct a surface pollution assessment).
When should they be developed?
In the case of obtaining a new integrated permit or in the case of installations that already have an integrated permit in the case of their 5-year analysis made by the permitting authority or in the case of an amendment to the integrated permit.
