Date published: 10 June 2020

Last updated: 30 June 2021

When Large Combustion Plant operators can delay meeting new emission limit values scheduled to take effect from 1 July 2020 because of coronavirus (COVID-19). 


If you follow the conditions in this COVID-19 regulatory position statement (RPS), you can continue to operate under the current ELVs in your permit until your plant is able to meet the new Annex V ELVs, in a time period as agreed in writing with the Chief Inspector, but not later than 31 December 2021.

This COVID-19 RPS only applies:

  • to LCP currently within the TNP
  • where upgrades to meet the new Annex V ELVs are delayed by coronavirus

You must get written agreement from the Chief Inspector before you use this COVID-19 RPS.
