All Domestic wastewater treatment systems have to be registered - so that includes septic tanks, waste water
tanks, soakaways , reed beds , and all proprietary treatment systems such as Envirocare , Bord na Mona , Klargester , BioCycle, BioDisc , EPS , Bison -etc. Whatever system you have in place it needs to be registered. Just because it isn't an old fashioned septic tank - don't think the rules don't apply.
Basically – if your house is not connected to the mains sewerage system you will need to register.
