Welcome to the combined guidance for IED permitting and inspection.
The guidance uses the Regulatory Cycle as shown below.
The main structure of this guidance consists of the following 4 parts.
- The first part is about legislation, it contains the general obligations from the Industrial Emissions Directive and is written for the policy makers;
- The second part is about the permitting process, it contains a strategic, general and operational steps and is written for the permit officer and his or her management;
- The third part is about the inspection process, this also contains a strategic, general and operational steps and is written for the inspector and his or her management;
- The fourth part is about evaluation and feedback on the legislative process and its implementation and is written for the all target groups mentioned above.
The 4 parts present the main body of this guidance. They can be seen as stepping stones to direct you to more detailed information that can be found in the linked factsheets, best practices and related IMPEL reports. Within part 2 and 3 you will also find operational and strategic cycles and corresponding steps. To keep the guidance readable we did our best to keep the main body of this guidance as short as possible.
