CTE & CTO - An Overview


Industries dealing with pollutants and hazardous wastes require consent from the authority to carry out operations. Any form of manufacturing industry and commercial establishments require secure consent from the requisite pollution control board. 


If the consent expires, it is mandatory for a manufacturer to apply for renewal with the pollution control board. Industries require two forms of No Objection Certificates (NOC) to start their operations. We, at GRC India, are here to assist you to secure NOC for your industry. The two types of NOC for industries are listed below. 


CTE or Consent to Establish 

Consent To Establish is the form of compliance required to establish or carry out manufacturing industrial operations. Any industry, operation or process discharging sewerage or trade effluent to the environment or likely to emit air pollution into the atmosphere are required to obtain CTE from the respective state pollution control board.

At GRC India, our team of compliance executives help you apply for CTE from the pollution control board online.

CTO or Consent To Operate

Another form of compliance to secure NOC is Consent To Operate. Manufacturers are required to secure this consent to ensure their industry is maintaining standards related to the operations. It is mandatory for all industries to get this consent to operate.

At GRC India, we extend our services for CTO from pollution control board online registration.
