When the works have been completed, the applicant must contact EPA to arrange an inspection of the completed works. In most cases a licence will then be required for operation of the works.
Where appropriate, EPA will issue a commissioning approval before the licence, to allow start-up and testing of initial operations and to confirm compliance with the works approval.
For further details refer to section 3 of Part A of the EPA’s works approval assessment process (publication 1657).
