Amendment of an existing licence
The EPA may amend a licence or revised licence to:-
- correct any clerical error,
- allow the doing of anything under the condition of a licence that may reasonably be regarded as having been contemplated under the terms of the individual condition or the licence as a whole but is not specifically stipulated in that condition, or
- facilitate compliance by the holder of a licence with technical requirements that may be extablished, or amended, arising from the introduction of new Community acts or amendments to existing Community acts, or
- otherwise enable the operation of the licence once the amendment doesn’t contravene the relevant requirements of Section 40(4) of the WMA Act 1996 ceasing to be satisfied. This includes:
ensuring emissions comply with environmental standards and do not cause environmental pollution;
the activity will comply with relevant Directives;
BAT shall be applied to reduce/prevent emissions;
the activity is consistent with the objectives of the relevant waste/hazardous waste management plan etc.
