2015
Interpretation
2. (1) In this scheme, unless the contrary intention appears:
“activity” means any activity carried on as part of a Part A or Part B installation whether or not
described in Schedule 1 to the Regulations, and in a case where an activity falls within two or
more descriptions in Schedule 1 to the Regulations, that activity shall be regarded for the purposes
of this scheme as falling within that description which fits it most aptly;
“APC activity” means any activity which would, prior to the requirement for a permit, have
required a Part B or Part C permit, and which now falls within a Part A installation to be
regulated by the chief inspector;
“component” means any component as defined in the Schedule to this scheme;
“farming activity” means an activity which falls within any description in Section 6.9 of Part 1 of
Schedule 1 to the Regulations;
“low impact installation” means an installation which, in the opinion of the chief inspector, cannot
result in emissions or where, in the opinion of the chief inspector, there is no likelihood that it will
result in emissions except in a quantity which is so trivial that it is incapable of causing pollution
or its capacity to cause pollution is insignificant;
“non standard farming application” means an application for a permit or a variation of a permit in
respect of a farming activity which is not a standard farming application;
“non standard farming permit” means a permit for a farming activity which does not contain all
the conditions applicable to that category of farming activity, specified in the “Standard Farming
Installation Rules and Guidance” issued by the chief inspector and in force at the time the charge
in question is payable;
“permit” means a permit granted under regulation 10 of the Regulations;
“standard farming application” means an application for a permit or for a variation of a permit in
respect of a farming activity, which demonstrates that the operator will be able to operate that part
of the installation which is a farming activity so as to comply with all of the conditions (applicable
to the category of farming activity, for which he is applying), specified in the “Standard Farming
Installation Rules and Guidance” issued by the chief inspector and in force at the date of the
application and in which the operator requests the grant of a standard farming permit;
“standard farming permit” means a permit for a farming activity which contains all the conditions
applicable to that category of farming activity, specified in the “Standard Farming Installation
Rules and Guidance” issued by the chief inspector and in force at the time the charge in question
is payable;
2
“the chief inspector” means the person appointed as such under regulation 8 of the Regulations;
“the Department” means the Department of the Environment;
“the Regulations” means The Pollution Prevention and Control (Industrial Emissions)
Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2013 and expressions used in this charging scheme shall have
the same meaning as in the Regulations;
(2) For the purposes of this scheme references to “installation”, “Part A installation” or “Part B
installation” shall be taken to include references to “mobile plant”, “Part A mobile plant” or “Part
B mobile plant”, unless the contrary intention appears, and where the context requires shall mean
only that part of the installation which is the subject of the permit or the application for a permit.

Schedule
Article 2(1)
Component Allocation to Part A Activities
1.
Interpretation
(1) The activities listed in the chapters to this Schedule include both those described in
Schedule 1 to the Regulations and any other activities which may form part of a Part A
installation within the meaning of the Regulations. Also, chapter and section references in
the Schedule are those described in Schedule 1 to the Regulations and references to
Schedule 1 are references to Schedule 1 to the Regulations.
(2) The number of components attributable to an installation shall include the sum of all
those components attaching to each and every activity carried on within the installation.
(3) Unless otherwise stated, where more than one action is described in a component
definition, then the actions taken either individually or collectively count as the ascribed
8
number of components. For example, the component descriptions in section 1.2 include:
“All tar removal, liquor removal and naphthalene wash”
This means that if the only action in the activity is tar removal, it counts individually as
one component. It means also that if the activity involves tar removal, liquor removal and
naphthalene wash or any combination of these then the actions taken collectively count as
one component.
(4) Activities which are a farming activity or an APC activity shall have no components in
any event.
(5) Nothing in this Schedule shall apply to an activity which is or is part of a Part B
installation, a transferred Part C installation, or a low impact installation.
2.
Definitions
For the purposes of this scheme the following definitions apply:
(1) Raw materials: All materials used in the activity including organic solvents but excluding
water and material recycled within the activity.
(2) Products: All output from the activity including liquid or solid carriers but excluding any
water in the product, material recycled within the activity, and all effluent and waste. For
plating, coating and similar surface treatments the weight of treatment material refers to
the weight of material added or removed.
(3) Year: Means calendar year
(4) Use: Where a component definition is based on the quantities of substance(s) used this
shall mean the total quantities of substance(s) consumed in or released from the activity.
9
3. Pilot and Development Activities
Where an installation contains pilot and development activities that are not parts of
another activity described in Schedule 1 to the Regulations, those activities will be treated
as follows:
(1) Pilot and development activities are treated differently from other activities if they are
undertaken by the same operator on the same site and together use a total of less than 100
tonnes of raw materials per year. Where the pilot and development activities use 100
tonnes or more of raw materials per year, the largest activity will be treated according to
the corresponding section of the scheme. The remaining activities will be treated
according to the procedure for pilot and development activities in this section.
(2) Pilot and development activities are permitted under the section of Schedule 1 to the
Regulations which most aptly describes the activity.
(3) For the first pilot or development activity applied for by an operator in relation to an
installation: 1 component
(4) For each further pilot and development activity applied for by the same operator in
relation to the same installation: 1 component
4.
Envelope Activities
In the case of activities described in chapter 4 of this Schedule, where several production
sequences are undertaken on similar or the same plant within the same installation, by the
same operator and where all fall within descriptions in the same section of Schedule 1 to
the Regulations, then they may be grouped together as a single activity (the “envelope
activity”) for the purposes of the calculation of components. The most apt description in
Schedule 1 should be selected as the envelope activity.
5.
Minimum Component Allocation
Where an activity is not part of a low impact installation and is not a farming activity or
an APC activity and no components described in this Schedule are attributable, the
activity shall be deemed to comprise one component.
