NetRegs is a website set up to help small businesses in Scotland and Northern Ireland become more environmentally aware.  It has been developed by a partnership between the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) in Scotland and the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) in Northern Ireland. NetRegs is a source of free environmental guidance for small and medium-sized enterprises based in Scotland and Northern Ireland. The website provides information and guidance on key environmental legislation as well as good practice for every type of business. It is free to use and available 24 hours a day. Since 2006 it has also offered to provide updates by email. NetRegs also provides free e-learning tools, an environmental self-assessment tool and hosts the GPPs (Guidance for Pollution Prevention documents, a replacement for the old PPGs).
