  • Noise impact assessment (provisional and for existing activities) in accordance with Law 447/95 and Prime Ministerial Decree 14/11/1997
  • A provisional assessment is required in accordance with art. 8 of the Framework Law on noise pollution no. 447/95 to predict and assess the effect of the sound generated by an activity or an infrastructure on the surrounding area; in particular, it is required for the issuance of the building permit for new facilities and production, sports and recreational infrastructures and for multifunctional business service stations. Upon completion of the installation, diagnostic surveys are carried out for the assessment of the acoustic compatibility with the limits imposed by the legislation in force (emission, immission and differential limits in reference to the acoustic zoning of the area).
  • Assessment of the acoustic climate in accordance with Law 447/95 and Prime Ministerial Decree 14/11/1997
  • A provisional assessment of the acoustic climate is required in accordance with art. 8 of the Framework Law on noise pollution no. 447/95, in order to verify that the acoustic climate of the area analysed is not polluted by noise; in particular, it is required for the issuance of the building permit for schools and kindergartens, hospitals, hospices and nursing homes, urban and suburban public parks and new residential developments near to potentially polluting works.
  • All documentation relating to noise pollution is drafted by a technician who is competent in acoustics, in accordance with article 2, paragraph 6 of the aforementioned Framework Law.
  • Verification of the presence and proper completion of waste records and forms
  • Annual waste report (MUD)
  • The single environmental declaration form (MUD) identifies the telematic declaration to be made annually by obliged entities to the relevant Chamber of Commerce.The deadline for its submission is generally set for 30 April of each year; for 2019, it is set – exceptionally – for 22 June.
  • Integrated Environmental Permit (AIA)

The integrated environmental permit (AIA) is necessary for carrying out any installations in which one or more activities listed in annex VIII to part two of Legislative Decree 152/2006 are performed.

The AIA also replaces the environmental permits listed in annex IX to part two of Legislative Decree 152/06 necessary to carry out the activities performed and the facilities present at the installation.

The authorisation procedure requires the convening of a local authorities planning conference, to which the relevant authorities on environmental matters are invited, along with the applicant for the permit.

  • Single Environmental Permit

The Single Environmental Permit (AUA) is an environmental authorisational measure which uses a single licence to replace various environmental permits provided for by the sectoral legislation.

The AUA must be requested by small and medium-sized enterprises (as defined by Ministerial Decree on Production Activities of 18 April 2005 in art. 2) and by establishments not subject to the discipline of the AIA (Integrated Environmental Permit) which are subject to the issuance, establishment, renewal or updating of at least one of the qualifying environmental permits (atmospheric emissions, water discharges, etc.).

  • Atmospheric emissions

Equipment and activities that produce atmospheric emissions must receive prior authorisation aimed at preventing and limiting atmospheric pollution, in accordance with the provisions of part five of Legislative Decree 152/2006 and subsequent amendments and additions.

Some types of equipment and activities (included in part I of annex IV of part five) have atmospheric emissions which the legislator has deemed nearly irrelevant to the effects of atmospheric pollution: the facilities in which only these types are present are not subject to authorisation.

For the specific categories of facility (included in part II of annex IV of part five), the legislator has determined that the regions may adopt general authorisations which can be joined by way of simplified authorisation procedures.

For all other facilities which do not belong to the two aforementioned exceptions, a permit for atmospheric emissions must be requested by initiating an ordinary authorisational procedure which other relevant entities (the city, ARPA) may participate in, which can provide for the institution of the local authorities planning conference and which is concluded with a document released by the relevant authority.

  • Water discharges

All discharges of industrial waste waters must be authorised in advance as provided for by art. 124 of Legislative Decree 152/2006 and subsequent amendments and additions. Art. 74 defines industrial discharge, i.e. industrial waste water, as “any type of waste water discharged from buildings or facilities where commercial activities or the production of goods takes place, other than domestic waste water and run-off rainwater”.
