Environmental and safety studies

Vinçotte supports companies in drawing up environmental permit applications, and preparing and developing studies that are a pre-requisite to obtain an environmental permit. This involves, among other things, an Environmental Impact Assessment (MER) or an Environmental Safety Report (OVR) required in connection with the application for an environmental permit, or additional environmental and safety studies that are a pre-requisite to obtain an environmental permit. Companies can also approach us to conduct preparatory environment-specific policy studies.

Vinçotte offers you a wide range of services tailor-made to the needs of your company. We can count on the efforts of recognised experts within various disciplines such as air, water, (human) health, noise and vibrations, and soil. They can competently describe the various environmental impacts of industrial projects as well as of infrastructure work (airports, pipelines, etc.). Our central position enables us to carry out and complete studies independently and quickly. The use of the best available techniques is central to our approach in this regard. In order to predict possible environmental effects, we see great value in combining the generally accepted models with GIS applications.

If your project requires the drafting of environmental safety reports (OVR), or the conduct of safety studies (relating to dust explosion or wind turbines), our recognised VR [Safety Report] experts will also organise the same for you, thereby providing you with a fully integrated service relating to your environmental permit.

Our specific and detailed approach ensures that you are fully ready to submit your environmental permit application immediately.


When conducting studies and providing other services, close adherence is ensured to the various European regulations, the regional legislation relating to the environmental permits (Vlarem [Flemish Regulation for Environmental permits] I and II), as well as the MER-VR decree and related implementation decrees.

Norms and standards

In all projects, the generally accepted codes of good practice, best available techniques (BAT) and the reference documents (BREF) are complied with and duly implemented.


Our quantitative risk analyses are only prepared using the latest versions of the best available software (DNV GL [the Norwegian classification society Det Norske Veritas and the German classification society Germanischer Lloyd], TNO [Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research], etc.)

Vinçotte is always happy to make its specialists available for industrial projects, apart from SMEs and the government.
