Doing the right things for environmental permitting

2016 - 2018

Completed

Project description and aims

The Environmental Inspection Cycle (EIC) describes step by step how environmental inspections should be planned and what to consider when executing the inspections. The EIC is also used by IMPEL as a framework where other IMPEL inspection initiatives can hook up on to create a better cohesion between the tools that are developed. Although there is a lot of experience in Europe in environmental permitting, the procedure itself has never been described in a step-by-step guidance. As a result there is no level playing field for the procedures of environmental permitting, there is no guidance for new permitting officers and there is less cohesion between the IMPEL initiatives on permitting.

The proposal of this 3 year project is to: 1) collect and compare the procedures that are used within
Europe at this moment and clarify the needs, 2) based on this information, a project team will develop a guidance that is flexible enough to accommodate the authorities in Europe while issuing permits for the IED, 3) organise training sessions on IED permitting and identify the gaps in tools and methodologies for issuing permits so new IMPEL projects can be initiated.

Doing the right things for environmental permitting will look closely at the relation between permitting and inspection, identify interesting case studies and best practices in Europe and identify and describe the steps that could be used in permitting procedures.

The final outcome of the work is a step-by-step guidance for permitting, well trained permitting officers and an identification of new IMPEL initiatives for projects on permitting.

Doing the right things for Permitting looks closely at the relation between permitting and inspection, identify interesting case studies and best practices in Europe and identify and describe the steps that could be used in permitting and inspection.
