Provenance information Each applicant for an EPA licence should submit details out the facility boundary. The boundary is digitised and provided by the licensee, Bord na Mona. Reg number attributes are assigned to each boundary. The first 5 digits are referring to the facility and the '-01' refers to the licence version. After the full licence is issued, the licence is checked and amendments to the boundary are made if required. Spatial Accuracy: Most boundaries have been digitised manually from paper maps using OSI aerial photography as the reference map. Thematic Accuracy: The boundaries are given the same EPA Reg Code as is on the licence.
