Standard rules and risk assessments for waste operations

Update: 31/03/2023 


Our permitting charges will remain at 2022-2023 rates until any new charging schemes are agreed.  


See details of the proposed charges we intend to implement for 2023-2024, subject to Ministerial approval. 

Before you apply for a standard rules waste permit make sure that:

  • you understand the standard rules set
  • the rule describes exactly what you want to do
  • you will be able to meet the requirements of the rules

You can't vary standard rules and you can't appeal against them.
