A discharge licence is required where a trade effluent is discharged to either a public sewer, surface water or groundwater.

The Water Pollution Act (1977) defined a trade effluent as a wastewater, which is discharged from premises used for carrying on any trade or industry (including mining) but does not include domestic sewage or storm water.
