Scottish Environment Protection Agency

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) is Scotland’s environmental regulator. SEPA's main role is to protect and improve the environment, achieved by being an excellent environmental regulator, helping business and industry to understand their environmental responsibilities, enabling customers to comply with legislation and good practice and to realise the many economic benefits of good environmental practice.

SEPA protects communities by regulating activities that can cause harmful pollution and by monitoring the quality of Scotland's air, land and water. The regulations SEPA implements also cover the keeping and use, and the accumulation and disposal, of radioactive substances.
