Environmental Regulations & Inspections


How will COVID-19 impact SEPA inspections?

SEPA have currently postponed all farm visits and all routine compliance inspections, sampling and monitoring has been put on hold for the foreseeable future. This procedure is under review as SEPA prioritise their work and location visits and more detailed information will be available over the course of the next few weeks. 

All SEPA staff have been instructed to work from home and the only time SEPA staff will be asked work within the rural environment is to attend pollution incidents.  
 

I am currently in the process of completing a structure, what should I do?  

If you are currently working on a new structure, such as a slurry store or silage pit, you should may contact with your local area office or officer. Often, these structures require a sign off and an inspection from a SEPA staff member. It is anticipated that these inspections will not be able to be conducted and therefore an alternative process may be introduced, for example provision of photographic evidence.  

Please make contact with your local adviser to discuss this in more detail.  
 

How can I contact SEPA staff?

SEPA staff are still on hand to provide advice to land managers and you should make contact with your local area office or officer if you would like to discuss anything.  

A list of local SEPA offices and their contact details is available here: https://www.sepa.org.uk/contact/office-locations/list/
