Protection of the Environment Operations (General) Regulation 2009
Current version for 1 May 2020 to date (accessed 5 August 2020 at 09:53)
10B   Determination of environmental management category—insufficient information provided
(1)  If insufficient information is given to the EPA by a licence holder for the EPA to determine the correct environmental management category for the licence holder within 60 days after the beginning of the relevant licence fee period, the EPA may determine the environmental management category (and the resulting amount of the administrative fee) having regard to such information, if any, as is available to it.
 A licence holder is required to report this information to the EPA in the annual return, required to be furnished as a condition of the licence, in relation to the licence holder’s performance in managing environmental risks during a licence fee period.
(2)  The amount of the administrative fee so determined is taken to be the correct fee amount unless the contrary is established by the person who is liable to pay the fee in any proceedings for the recovery of the fee or other proceedings relating to the fee.
