Environmental Protection UK – why you should join

So, what would EPUK Membership offer?

  • A collective voice to Government, lobbying on environmental protection issues particularly where these affect local authorities as regulators
  • Access to the three National Policy Committees for air, noise and land either as representatives or through briefings of matters discussed. DEFRA/EA Officials are represented.
  • Online access to and a paper copy of Essential Environment, a Comprehensive Guide to Environmental Protection. Included in some membership packages.
  • Discounted delegate fees for the Annual Conference and Regional seminars, many of which are offered free to EPUK Members.
  • Access to technical information via the website at environmental-protection.org.uk
  • Use of EPUK’s public information leaflets on a variety of key environmental topics
  • Communications with news of technical and policy developments.
  • Networking with environmental protection professionals in both the public and private sectors and links into the European Federation of Clean Air and Environmental Protection Associations (EFCA), the Land Forum and the International Union of Air Pollution Prevention and Environmental Protection Associations (IUAPPA).
  • Training/Awareness raising opportunities on environmental protection issues with CPD entitlement. Recent events held regionally covered brownfield planning, updates on noise assessments using BS4142:2015, assessment of gas-contaminated land and asbestos.

We know the economic downturn has hit us all hard and so EPUK has redesigned its membership packages effective from September 2016, most including either a paper or electronic copy of Essential Environment or an option to purchase a copy.

NOTES

1.  Essential Environment, a comprehensive guide to UK and EU environmental protection legislation (formerly Pollution Handbook published by National Society for Clean Air and later by Environmental Protection UK) is now owned and published by International Labmate ltd, www.essentialenvironment.org.uk

EPUK has negotiated a special deal with International Labmate for EPUK members to benefit from this valued publication.

The commercial rate for Essential Environment and one online licence for amendments and updates (more or less daily, with weekly summaries) would total £300.00.

2.  If seven individuals wish to club together to create an informal environmental grouping within their own local authority, organisation, academic institution or university, at the individual member rate (currently £60.00), then EPUK would accept that grouping as a member with all the relevant benefits under the appropriate membership category.
