This guidance document aims to bring about efficiencies in processing requests for alterations to permits for dumping at sea.  It also seeks to ensure transparency with regard to the legal requirements under-pinning decision making, and in doing so enable permit holders to engage with the EPA in a timely and efficient manner.

Currently there are three mechanisms available for regularising an alteration request as follows:

(i)   a letter of agreement,

(ii)  an amendment, or

(iii) a new permit application.
