Following through the application proceedings
The application proceedings of environmental permits require entering into the legislative requirements, company’s operations and the environmental impacts of the operations. A thorough, high-quality permit application fulfills the prerequisites of granting a permit. The extent of an application depends on the nature of the operations and its environmental impacts.
