Environmental Compliance Approval (ECA) Applications

By law, a business must have an environmental approval or registration from the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change if it:

  • Releases pollutants into the air, land or water
  • Stores, transports or disposes of waste

An environmental approval or registration sets out rules of operation for these activities that are intended to protect the natural environment and are legally enforceable.
