Your current licence is available for download through the Portal. In future, as it is updated, you may be able to search for old versions of your licence and/or applications by selecting a status from the dropdown menu:
In some cases, you may see a different licence number from what you are used to. The new licence numbers are allocated by our system and they no longer have a prefix (e.g. ES, SW or EA). The change in number occurs as your licence is amended or updated.
Eventually all licences will have new licence numbers.
Corporate licences are now referred to as amalgamated licences. Amalgamated Licences are also now available through the Portal.
The prefix ‘CL’ is no longer used in the licence number and the numerical digits are also changing. This change has an impact on organisations that use paper waste transport certificates. Such organisations should now use the individual premises reference number when completing Part C of a certificate, rather than the old corporate licence number.
