Part A

October 1st to December 31st 2006

(3) For the purpose of sub-paragraph (2), where an activity falls within a description in Part A of more than one Section of Part 1 of Schedule 1, it shall be regarded as falling only within that description which fits it most aptly.

(4) Subject to sub-paragraph (5), where more than one activity falling within Part A of any Section in Part 1 of Schedule 1 is carried out in an existing Part A installation or using an existing Part A mobile plant, the relevant period for that installation or mobile plant shall be the period beginning with the earliest date listed against one of those activities in the table in sub-paragraph (2).

(5) Where more than one activity falling within Part A of any Section in Part 1 of Schedule 1 is carried out in an existing Part A installation, the operator of the installation may apply to SEPA to determine that the relevant period for the installation shall not be the period determined by sub-paragraph (4) but the later period listed in the table in sub-paragraph (2) against the primary activity of the installation.

(6) An application under sub-paragraph (5) shall be in writing (or in electronic form acceptable to SEPA) and shall –

(a)identify the installation concerned;

(b)list the activities falling within Part A of any Section in Part 1 of Schedule 1 which are carried on in the installation; and

(c)identify which of those activities the operator considers to be the primary activity,

and shall be submitted at least 3 months before the beginning of the period which would be the relevant period for the installation concerned under sub-paragraph (4).

(7) Where SEPA receives a duly made application under sub-paragraph (5) it shall, if it agrees with the operator that the activity identified pursuant to sub-paragraph (6)(b) is the primary activity, serve notice of its determination on the operator, and the later period listed against that activity in sub-paragraph (2) shall be the relevant period for the installation.

(8) Where SEPA does not agree with the operator as mentioned in sub-paragraph (7) it shall serve notice of its determination on the operator and the relevant period for the installation shall be the period determined by sub-paragraph (4).

(9) SEPA shall serve notice of its determination of any application made under sub-paragraph (5) within 2 months of receiving the application.

(10) Where there is more than one operator of an installation, an application under sub-paragraph (5) shall be made by the operators of the installation jointly and the references in sub-paragraphs (6) to (8) to the operator shall be construed as a reference to all of the operators.

(11) For the purpose of sub-paragraphs (5) to (9) the primary activity of an installation is the activity the carrying out of which constitutes the primary purpose for operating the installation.

3.  For the purpose of paragraphs 1 and 2, where separate applications are made to operate different parts of a Part A installation–

(a)the date by which applications have been made in relation to all parts of the installation shall be treated as the date on which an application for a permit to operate the installation is made;

(b)an application for a permit to operate the installation shall only be treated as having been duly made if each of the separate applications are duly made;

(c)the determination date for the installation shall be, in relation to each part of the installation which is covered by a separate application, the determination date for that part of the installation.

4.—(1) Where there is a substantial change in the operation of an existing Part A installation on or after 31st October 1999 and before the transitional date, the prescribed date for that part of the installation affected by the change shall be–

(a)where an application for a permit authorising the operation of that part of the installation is duly made before the transitional date, the determination date for that part of the installation;

(b)where no such application is made, the transitional date.

(2) Where there is a substantial change in the operation of an existing Part A installation on or after the transitional date, the prescribed date for that part of the installation affected by the change shall be the date on which the change is made if earlier than the date which would be the prescribed date for the installation under paragraph 2.

5.—(1) Subject to sub-paragraph (2), an application for a permit to operate an existing Part A installation or Part A mobile plant shall not be made before the beginning of the relevant period for that installation or mobile plant without the consent of SEPA.

(2) Where an operator of an existing Part A installation proposes to make a substantial change in the operation of the installation the operator may make an application before the beginning of the relevant period for a permit to operate that part of the installation that will be affected by the substantial change.
