Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control Directive (IPPC) and industrial emissions, 1996, 2010

EU Upcoming

The Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) Directice requires Member States to lay down permit conditions for operators to control, monitor and report emissions from IPPC installations. Member States also have to provide data on implmentation to the Commission. As 2014 the Directive was followed by the Directive on industrial emissions 2010/75/EU (IED – adopted in November 2010). The IED entered into force in 2011 and was transposed into national legislation by Member States by 2013. The IED repealed the IPPC Directive and related sectoral directives as of January 2014, with the exception of the Large Combustion Plant (LCP) Directive which was repealed as of January 2016. The aim of the Commission has been for the new Directive on industrial emissions (IED) to recast seven existing Directives related to industrial emissions into a single clear and coherent legislative instrument.
