Facilities that are likely to generate hazards or harm to public health and/or the environment are regulated under the “classified facilities for protection of the environment” legislation (ICPE: installations classées pour la protection de l’environnement).
The management of a site that is subject to ICPE regulations involves a proactive regulatory watch on relevant topics and having solutions available for managing environmental and health risks.
Depending on the significance of the risks or hazards, a facility will be regulated under a particular nomenclature or ranking and is therefore obliged to follow a
- Declaration procedure (D or DC if the facility is subject to periodic inspection by a certified organisation)
- Registration procedure (E) or
- Permit/authorisation procedure (A) or
- Permit/authorisation procedure with public utility easements (AS – SEVESO regulations).
