The new series provide environmental good practice guidance for the whole UK, and environmental regulatory guidance directly to Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales only. For businesses in England, regulatory guidance is available from GOV.UK instead.

In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales please consider the remaining PPGs, the ones that have not been updated and reprinted as GPPs, as a source of information on good practice only. In England, please check for up to date regulatory information in GOV.UK .
