Commission Proposes Revision to IPPC and Other Industrial Emissions Directives

EU Policy Briefing note - 4 January 2008.

The Commission has published its long awaited proposal for the revision of the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) Directive (96/61/EC). Over the last couple of years the Commission has undertaken a series of studies examining current implementation of IPPC, its coherence with other legislation, its possible extension to cover other activities and its interaction with other instruments. This has been combined with a series of discussions with stakeholders. Thus there is considerable interest in what has been concluded.
