The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), along with the Welsh and Scottish Governments and the Department of the Environment Northern Ireland, have published a number of revised Process Guidance Notes for local authority regulated industries.

The notes give guidance on Best Available Techniques (BAT) and are aimed at providing a strong framework for consistent and transparent regulation of installations regulated under the statutory Local Air Pollution Prevention and Control (LAPPC) regime.

The notes typically include a description of the activity with a summary of applications and descriptions of typical processes, provide information on emission limits, monitoring and other provisions, control techniques, and provide a model permit.
