AIS Environment is a consultancy company that plays a critical role in the operational phase of commercial and industrial facilities. The consultant's primary responsibility is to ensure that clients comply with environmental regulations and best practices in the industry. The consultants at AIS Environment work closely with clients to gather all the necessary information and prepare a comprehensive application that meets regulatory requirements.


Our team of experts will apply for operational permits for the commercial/industrial facilities on behalf of the client. With extensive experience with the application process, we have all the know-how to ensure all environment legislation and best practice is implemented. These operational permits include IPPC permits and Environmental Permits.


An IPPC permit is a comprehensive environmental permit that regulates emissions to air, water, and soil, waste management, energy efficiency, and other environmental factors. The permit ensures that the facility operates in an environmentally sustainable manner and meets regulatory requirements. The consultant's role is to ensure that clients meet the necessary regulatory requirements and prepare a comprehensive IPPC permit application.


Environmental permits are similar to IPPCs but cover smaller-scale facilities. They set conditions to reduce impacts to air, water and land. Our team at AIS Environment prepare the Environment Permit Application for our clients to ensure that operators meet the necessary regulatory requirements required for their operations.


AIS Environment also helps clients to prepare environmental policies that may be required during the operational phase of the facility. These policies may include Waste Management Plans, Environment Management Plans, and Environment Monitoring Programmes. The consultant's role is to ensure that the policies are up-to-date, comprehensive, and in compliance with regulatory requirements.


AIS take care of all permits and monitoring that may be necessary during the operational phase of the facility, including: 

  • Aquaculture

  • Batching plants

  • Bulk fuel storage facilities

  • Cement sites

  • Combustion plants within the scope of the MCP regulations

  • Farms and slaughterhouses

  • Hospitals, medical care and elderly care facilities

  • Hotels and accommodation facilities, Maintenance industry

  • Manufacturing industry

  • Petrol stations

  • Pharmaceutical industry

  • Quarries, Scrapyards and ELV facilities, Sewage treatment plants

During the operation phase of a commercial or industrial facility, AIS Environment has all the equipment and expertise necessary to monitor emissions to air, land, water, and other environmental impacts. We can also monitor the impact of noise and waste on the surrounding environment and provide recommendations on measures to mitigate any potential environmental impacts. We work closely with clients to identify the sources of emissions and environmental impacts, and implement measures to reduce the impact of their operations on the environment.


From permit application to monitoring of facility emissions, AIS Environment will manage all your company’s environmental needs, so you don’t have to. 

Operational Phase: IPPC Permits

What is an IPPC? IPPCs regulate high risk installations as specified in Schedule 1 of Legal Notice 10 of 2013 which transpose the EU Industrial Emissions Directive (2010/75/EU). Such installations include power stations, specific waste management activities and large farms amongst others.


Where does AIS come in? AIS will coordinate with the client to consolidate the documentation necessary for the IPPC Permit application. These documents are complex, detailed and highly scientific forms that need to be prepared as part of the IPPC permit application process. 

Operational Phase:
Environmental Permits

What is an EP? Environmental permits are needed for the operation of various facilities which have potential environmental impacts such as air emissions, liquid discharges and waste generation through regular monitoring.


Where does AIS come in? Our team of experts will consolidate and compile the documentation necessary for the permit application and submit on the client’s behalf. AIS would also tackle all questions/comments by ERA and other stakeholders, making the complex process hassle-free.

Operational Phase: Monitoring

Why Operational Monitoring? EPs and IPPCs often require facilities to monitor the environment for emissions and pollution. Such monitoring could encompass air quality, noise, marine ecology, etc.


Where does AIS come in? Our monitoring team would handle the monitoring exercise from start to finish, by preparing the monitoring programme and implementing it. The AIS team will also prepare reports to be submitted to the ERA as required.
