Transfer of an EPA Licence

If a licensee decides to transfer his licence to another person (hereafter referred to as 'the proposed transferee'), the licensee and the proposed transferee are required to jointly make an application to the Agency requesting that such a transfer be effected by the Agency.

Applications for the transfer of an Industrial Emissions (IE), Integrated Pollution Control (IPC) or Waste licence from the existing licensee to a proposed transferee, must be made jointly by both parties using the 'Licence Transfer Application Web-form', available via 'LMA' through 'EDEN'.

Guidance on the Licence Transfer Application Process

The information required when completing the 'Licence Transfer Application Web-form' is as specified in the EPA Guidance for Licensees and Proposed Transferees on Licence Transfer Applications.

The licensee and proposed transferee should read this guidance in detail and collate the relevant information prior to completing the 'Licence Transfer Application Web-form'.

To assist you in completing the web-form you can also view screenshots of the Licence Transfer Application Web-form layout.
