Reporting data to the ELY Centre in accordance with an environmental permit or notification decision

  • Permit or other obligation
  • Nationwide except the Åland Islands
  • Public service

If your activities are subject to an environmental permit or notification obligation under the Environmental Protection Act, report your emissions, monitoring and observation data to the environmental protection supervisory authority of the ELY Centre. The data to be reported is specified in the environmental permit or notification decision.

The reporting data is needed for monitoring the activities of the party subject to the permit or notification obligation. The data must be submitted electronically through the regional administration’s e-service.

Do the following

Use the regional administration’s e-service for reporting. From the service, your data will be transferred to the YLVA system for the government’s environmental protection supervisory authority under the ELY Centre.

The regional administration’s e-service works best with either the Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge or Mozilla Firefox browser.

Select the following in the regional administration’s e-service: Palvelut > Ympäristöasioiden asiointipalvelu - YLVA.

Log into the system. The use of the service requires strong personal identification (mobile certificate, banking IDs or certificate card). A company can authorise persons to act on its behalf in the Suomi.fi e-Authorizations service.

Enter your company’s business ID and select the correct target, task (periodic reporting) and year to be reported.

If there is no suitable form for the data to be reported, send the data as an attachment. For example, an annual report containing a summary of the department’s activities and an analysis of the monitoring results, their significance and the development of emissions should be sent as an appendix.

Use only one transaction per reporting year. You can continue one you have previously begun from the “Työpöytä” tab.

Send completed forms from the “Lähettäminen” tab in the e-service. The submitted forms will be displayed on the “Arkisto” tab in the e-service.

The reports are recorded and archived electronically in the supervisory authority’s case management system. The reports are also saved on the “Arkisto” tab of the regional administration’s e-service.

For more instructions on using the e-service and filling in forms, visit the ymparisto.fi website. Please also acknowledge any sector-specific additional instructions. If necessary, contact the ELY Centre’s responsible supervisor. You can send technical questions to YLVA's customer service at ylva@ely-keskus.fi.
