Permitting process (include former LAP: emission regulation)

Permitting process (include former 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.

Assessment It is important that the industrial player’s administration department is competent in knowing the destination and scope of the system to be installed so that they can address the right authorities in the right way.
The impact is the length of process and non-uniformity of measures to be taken across municipalities to obtain permit, despite a given hydrogen production system. For small plants (<50 t H2 stored) the process can be smooth, depending on the municipality.
