Smile Start up without controller permission IFR

I want to know if a pilot which i did not give the clearance
to start the engines up, and even though he started them
up without informing me, so i want to know is that a
violation of the reglementation or not.

If yes which i think it is the case, then share with me the
If no then what should do in that situation.

Ps: type of aircraft ATR 72, passengers were onbord,
it was 06am, IFR .

Thank you for helping me.

I think its just a case that you need to explain to the pilot that at your airport, he is required to ask for start before starting engines.

If he starts without permission and he is delayed for whatever reason, he only has himself to blame for excessive fuel wastage.

Was it a clearance to push or did they start engines on stand for a powerback?

No, there is no regulation preventing a pilot from starting engines without permission.
