UK Environmental Law - 3
 

The Environmental Protection Act 1990 established the Integrated Pollution Control (IPC) regime and Local Air Pollution Control (LAPC) regime to regulate pollution from industrial processes.

Under IPC, the Environment Agency regulates emissions to air, water and land from around 2,000 installations.

Under LAPC, local authorities regulate emissions to air only from around 13,000 installations whose potential to pollute land and water is less significant.

The Pollution Prevention and Control Act 1999 extends integrated control to a further 5,000 extra industrial installations, particularly the manufacture of food and drink products. The Act takes a wider range of environmental impacts into account - such as noise, use of raw materials, accident prevention, site restoration and energy efficiency.

The Magistrates' Association's information toolkit covers many aspects of environmental crime and includes guidance on sentencing wildlife and conservation crimes.
