Date released: May 26, 2023
26 May 2023: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has today launched the first phase of a major new Online service, the Licensing and Enforcement Access Portal or LEAP Online, which will allow the public to view the enforcement activities, actions and communications between the EPA and holders of EPA licences and permits. The public will be able to view this information on our website via desktop, tablet and mobile phone.
Commenting on the launch of LEAP Online, Darragh Page, EPA Programme Manager said:
“As Ireland’s environmental regulator, we recognise the importance of keeping the public informed about the activities we regulate, and enabling people to participate in environmental decision-making.
The launch of LEAP Online will give the public even more access to detailed, timely information on how major industry, waste management, users of radiological materials, drinking water and sanitary services comply with their regulatory requirements. This in turn will contribute to promoting informed public discussion about achieving sustainable development into the future, while protecting Ireland’s environment and the health of our citizens.”
The release of LEAP Online is part of the EPA’s ongoing work to continuously improve public access to the information we hold. Over the years, the EPA has progressively delivered improved access to information about its licensing and enforcement activities.
The EPA will roll out LEAP Online in two phases:
Further information on the various categories of regulatory correspondence is available on the EPA website.
