Article 79.

An Environment Permit that does not relate to the operation of a classified facility or activity that requires a permit can be transferred without any special formalities.

If the Environment Permit relates to an operation requiring a permit for a classified establishment or activity, the transfer must be reported in advance to the authority responsible for the project for the transfer. The Government of Flanders shall determine the content of the transfer form, the time limit within which and the way in which the transfer must be notified.

As a result of the notification stated in subparagraph 2, the licensing decision shall be adapted by the competent authority [...] in accordance with the rules established by the Government of Flanders.


If charges are attached to an Environment Permit, the transferor shall remain obligated vis--vis the competent authority, unless the latter has agreed to the substitution of its debtor.
