Many environmental licences include a requirement to submit data returns or other reporting requirements on an annual or quarterly basis.
What should you do?
We are now actively reviewing many of the data returns and kindly request you to submit any outstanding returns for the following areas:
SPRI returns for the 2022 calendar year are due by 28 February 2023.
We will contact SPRI operators by email using the SPRI contact’s address in November 2022 to confirm contact details. We will then provide an excel form for each site, to be returned by email to SPRI.Administration@sepa.org.uk by 28 February 2023.
Where we don’t receive a response by email, we will look for a suitable alternative and may contact you by phone or letter to request more information.
The WDF data submissions and SEPA data validation tool are not impacted and operating as usual. Please submit your data as usual. Please send any queries to email@example.com
Please submit any outstanding returns to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Submitted returns should be representative of the same reporting periods as stated in your licence or permit, data should not be consolidated in one single return. Following this, please revert to the standard reporting schedule. Additional detail, reporting guidance, and current reporting forms are available on our website.
Please submit any outstanding returns to email@example.com as soon as possible.
For businesses who are required to submit Producer Responsibility (PR) data, please continue to use the relevant UK system to submit your data. SEPA is also now able to receive data submissions via the Producer.Responsibility@sepa.org.uk mailbox.
Please submit any outstanding returns to WRDataReturns@sepa.org.uk as soon as possible.
Other returns not mentioned above:
For any other returns required by your SEPA licence and not covered above, in most cases we are able to receive these and are proactively contacting licence holders to request submission. In the interim, if you wish to submit a licence return not covered above, please contact us for advice on the most appropriate means of submission.
For the avoidance of doubt, you should continue to report any environmental incidents as required by your SEPA permit by contacting our 24 Hour Pollution Hotline: 0800 80 70 60.
