On 15 December 2023, the Scottish Government published a consultation regarding proposed amendments to the Environmental Authorisations (Scotland) Regulations 2018 (EASR). EASR currently applies to radioactive substances, but the proposed amendments extend the framework to include water, waste, and industrial activities.
