Environmental Permit

Many activities generate pollution (air pollution, smells, noise, etc) and have an impact on the environment and human health. Formerly, running such activities could require holding several permits involving various complicated, uncoordinated and impractical procedures.

All of these authorisations have now been included in one unique document, the Environmental Permit which aims at ensuring that the operator takes all necessary precautions in order to avoid any environmental damage related to the latter’s activity.

The various permits

The environmental permit has replaced the former permit to operate which has become obsolete.
If a project also requires a planning permit, the application will take the form of a unique permit

If a new establishment has a commercial surface area of more than 400m² for example, a socio-economic section will need to be enclosed with the file. This will then be referred to as an integrated permit.

Who must apply for a permit?

qui doit demander un permis

An establishment with so-called listed activities may not be run without an environmental permit.

Obtaining an environmental permit is compulsory for running several activities: 

  • Commercial; 
  • Industrial; 
  • Agricultural; 
  • Secondary installations (boilers, air conditioners, compressors, oil tanks, etc.). 

The formalities for obtaining this precious magical document are however very complicated and require precise knowledge of the legislation and in-depth experience of the administrative procedures.
