Permitting process (include LAP: emission regulation)

Permitting process (include LAP: emission regulation)

This LAP refers to the permitting process. It identifies what is the competent authority responsible for the permitting requirements, highlights the different steps of the process, and what are the different kinds of permits needed by the approval authority. Finally, it shows if the process is uniform throughout the country, how much time is needed to obtain the permit, and if there are some exemptions/simplified processes.
 
What is the competent authority responsible for the permitting requirements? If more than one, list them
What are the different steps of the process? Please indicate which authority in charge of which step if different authorities are involved
Are there any exemptions/”simplified” process (e.g. for demonstration projects)?
What kind of permits are needed by the approval authority, and are they separated/integrated (single permit)? E.g. building permit , construction and operation permit for installations, environmental permit
Is the process at local level uniform throughout a country? (uniform interpretation?)
How long does it take to obtain a permit for the construction and operation of a hydrogen production facility? a
) Is there a maximum response time for granting the permit b) If yes, what is the response time? c) What is the experience in practice?
a - Is there a maximum response time for granting the permit
b - If yes, what is the response time?
c - What is the experience in practice?
Is it a barrier? Yes
Type of Barrier Economic barriers, Operational barrier
Assessment Severity
2
Assessment The impact of this LAP is essentially on the project duration. A specific timescale should be planned to delimit the administrative authorization process.

The authorization process for the installation of a hydrogen production unit can take 12(best case) to 18 months (normal case). This time is quite long for units with a small production capacity (ex.: H2 production units for HRS). It is also necessary to have a specific budget for the “risk / damage” study & Environmental Impact study (15 – 20 k€ depending on the project size).
