London Port Health Authority (LPHA) is a regulator under the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010 (the Regulations) for Part A2 and Part B Processes in its area.

Find out more about environmental permitting guidance from the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).

The Regulations deal with emissions of pollutants from industrial processes, these processes are categorised under the Regulations as Part A1, Part A2 or Part B processes:

  • Part A1 processes are regulated by the Environment Agency.
  • We regulate Part A2 and Part B processes.

For Part A2 processes emissions to all environmental media are controlled including emissions to air, land and water as well as noise and vibration from the plant. At present, we have one A2 process involving the grinding of cement clinker.

Emissions to air are only subject of control for Part B processes and these include bulk cement discharge, storage and distribution, timber processing and vehicle re-spraying.
