In January 2017, the Scottish Government and SEPA consulted on proposals for an integrated authorisation framework. The aim of the framework is to integrate, as far as possible, the authorisation, procedural and enforcement arrangements relating to water, waste management, radioactive substances and pollution prevention and control. The integrated authorisation framework is being developed in a phased manner, starting with radioactive substances. The Integrated Authorisation Framework will replace the Radioactive Substances Act 1993 (as amended) in Scotland.
This part of the consultation seeks views on the supporting guidance. Please see https://consultation.sepa.org.uk/regulatory-strategy/iaf-draft-regulations/ for further information.
The consultation on the Integrated Authorisation Framework Supporting Guidance ends on 22nd December 2017.
