Find out how we categorise incidents and their possible effects on health and the environment
Every industrial process could theoretically pose a risk to human health and the environment. Find out how we measure this risk and how we score operators on their potential to impact the environment.
Industrial Operator Scores (OPRA)
Industrial Operator Scores reflect two of the five attributes that make a site’s Operational risk appraisal (Opra) profile.
The Compliance Rating band reflects the number of non-compliances with permit conditions we have recorded at the site over the course of a year.
The Operator Performance band is influenced by the type of management system the operator has in place and any formal enforcement action we have taken at the site.
More information about OPRA
Compliance Rating Scores
Compliance Rating Scores is our report of the level of permit breaches we’ve recorded at sites during the year.
We include both the number of breaches and also our assessment of the severity of these breaches, as determined by our Compliance Classification Scheme (CCS).
