The EPA grants and enforces Industrial Emissions (IE) licenses for specified agricultural activities.
You can find these licenses here:
Browse Applications/Licences by Applicant/Licensee name
Search by Register Number
Search by Applicant/Licensee Name
Search by Facility Type/County/Status
But, you cannot search by pig / piggery as not all pig farms have the keyword pig in the name
Here is a simple workaround in Excel of all EPA piggery licenses
Note: The only categories of intensive agricultural activities which fall under EPA control are:
|6.1||( a ) The rearing of poultry in installations where the capacity exceeds 40,000 places. ( b ) In clause (a) ‘ poultry ’ shall be construed in accordance with Regulation 2(2) of the European Communities (Poultry and Hatching Eggs) Regulations 2010 ( S.I. No. 564 of 2010 ). |
|6.2||The rearing of pigs in an installation where the capacity exceeds — ( a )750 places for sows, or ( b )2,000 places for production pigs which are each over 30kg.|
All intensive agriculture sites below these capacities would be controlled by the local authorities.
e.g. fur farms do not fall within the scope of the EPA Act
