Integrated prevention and polution control (IPPC)

Act No. 76/2002 Coll., on Integrated Prevention and Pollution Control, on the Pollutant Emission Register and on Amendments to Certain Acts, came into force on the January 1st 2003.

Purpose of this Act is to achieve high level of environmental protection, secure integrated performance of State administration when granting a licence to a facility operator and to run Integrated Pollutant Emission Register.

Operators of facilities listed under the IPPC Act are obliged to ask the competent administrative authority to issue or make changes in the Integrated Permit (IP).

The Permit application has to include complete information about the facility, processes involved, information about material usage and energy consumption as well as description and quantification of impact on the environment.

Furthermore, it has to also include information about the area surrounding the facility, including potential conflicts, description of measurements for surveillance and minimization of negative impact of operations on the environment and a proposal for required operating conditions.

The technology/equipment used must be compared against Best Available Technology (BAT) and ideally meet BAT parameters.

Competent administrative authority can request an Expert opinion study on the IP application (elaborated by Qualified person), based on which the IP is or is not issued.

Integrated permit will replace component decisions and therefore includes operational conditions and limits, which the technology/equipment has to meet.
