Notification of surrender of a permit for a Part B installation or Part B mobile plant

16.—(1) This regulation applies where an operator of a Part B installation or Part B mobile plant ceases or intends to cease operating the installation (in whole or in part) or the mobile plant.

(2) Where this regulation applies, the operator may–

(a)if that operator has ceased or intends to cease operating all of the installations and mobile plant covered by the permit, notify SEPA of the surrender of the whole permit;

(b)in any other case, notify SEPA of the surrender of the permit in so far as it authorises the operation of the installation or mobile plant (“the surrender unit”) which that operator has ceased or intends to cease operating (a “partial surrender”).

(3) A notification under paragraph (2) shall contain the following information:–

(a)the operator’s telephone number, address and e-mail address (if any) and, if different, any address or e-mail address to which correspondence relating to the notification should be sent;

(b)in the case of a partial surrender of a permit applying to Part B installations, a description of the surrender unit and a map or plan identifying the part of the site used for the operation of the surrender unit (the “identified part of the site”);

(c)in the case of a partial surrender of a permit applying to Part B mobile plant, a list of the mobile plant to which it applies; and

(d)the date on which the surrender is to take effect, which shall be at least 28 days after the date on which the notice is served on SEPA.

(4) Subject to paragraph (5), where a surrender is notified under this regulation, the permit shall cease to have effect on the date specified in the notification or, in the case of partial surrender, shall cease to have effect on that date to the extent surrendered.

(5) If, in the case of a partial surrender, SEPA is of the opinion that it is necessary to vary the conditions of the permit to take account of the surrender, it shall–

(a)notify the operator of its opinion; and

(b)serve a variation notice under regulation 13 on the operator specifying the variations of the conditions necessitated by the surrender,

and the permit shall cease to have effect to the extent surrendered on the date on which the variations specified in the variation notice take effect if that date is after the date specified in the notification of the surrender.
