Certificate of registration (COR)


The waste activities that require a certificate of registration are listed in Part II of the Third Schedule of the Waste Management (Facility Permit and Registration) Regulations 2007, S.I. No. 821 of 2007. The list of activities was amended in 2008 by S.I. No. 86 of 2008.

When these activities are carried out by local authorities, the EPA can grant a certificate of registration as authorisation for the activity.

When these activities are carried out by individuals or organisations that are not local authorities, certificates of registration are granted by the local authority in whose area the activity will be carried out.

Contact your local authority if you wish to apply for a certificate of registration.
