DAERA, and its Executive Agency, NIEA, are working with local authorities and the waste industry to support this essential service. They recognise that there may be disruption to waste management services throughout the Covid-19 health crisis, and have produced temporary Covid-19 Regulatory Position Statements to help the waste sector during this period. 

View the temporary COVID-19 Regulatory Position Statements here >>>

This COVID-19 Regulatory Position Statement (RPS) only applies if you cannot comply with the monitoring requirements specified in your permit/certificate due to COVID-19 restrictions. You must get written agreement from the Chief Inspector – (Northern Ireland Environment Agency) before you use this COVID-19 RPS.
