Discharges of industrial waste water to collecting systems or treatment plants

7.—(1) It shall be the duty of the Department in exercising its functions under Part V of the 1973 Order (trade effluents) with respect to any discharge of industrial waste water, to secure that the requirements of Schedule 4 are met in respect of that discharge.

(2) Nothing in Article 24(1) of the 1973 Order (conditions of consent) shall be construed as restricting the power of the Department to impose in any consent under that Part such conditions as are necessary to comply with paragraph (1).

(3) Nothing in any agreement entered into between the Department and the occupier of premises used for carrying on any trade or industry shall be treated as a consent, direction or condition for the purposes of Part V of the 1973 Order unless the terms of that agreement are such as will secure that the requirements of Schedule 4 are met in respect of any discharge to which the agreement relates.

(4) The Department shall review, and if necessary modify, the consents, directions or conditions granted under Part V of the 1973 Order at regular intervals.

(5) For the purposes of complying with paragraph (1) the Department may vary any agreement under Article 32 of the 1973 Order (agreements as respects trade premises) which provides for the discharge of industrial waste water to an urban waste water treatment plant without first entering a public sewer, and any such agreement shall not be enforceable if and to the extent that it permits any discharge of industrial waste water in respect of which the requirements of Schedule 4 are not met.

(6) Nothing in Part V of the 1973 Order shall—

(a)restrict the power of the Department to vary a consent, direction or condition in pursuance of the duty imposed by this regulation; or

(b)render the Department liable to pay compensation as a consequence of any such variation made in pursuance of that duty.
