Pollution Prevention Guidelines (PPGs)
The Pollution Prevention Guidelines (PPGs) were a series of good practice guides developed by the Environment Agency (EA) for England and Wales, the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA).
On 17 December 2015, the PPGs have been withdrawn from use as the EA decided to focus on regulatory-only guidance rather than good practice advice.
They are still available in the National Archive at http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20140328090931/http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/business/topics/pollution/39083.aspx
A list of current guidance can be seen at: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/pollution-prevention-guidance-ppg
