Environmental inspections of industrial installations in accordance with the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED)

2012 - 2013


Project description and aims

The objective of this project was to organise an exchange of information concerning best practices for the implementation of article 23 and other inspection relevant articles of the IED. Taking into account the guidance on inspection planning and risk appraisal already developed by IMPEL as well as the requirements of the IED an interactive guidance book on IED inspection was developed.

This guidance book aims at helping practitioners to answer the basic questions any inspecting authority has to deal with when implementing the IED into its inspection frame and the (IMPEL) inspection cycle. During the IED Inspections project the IED inspection obligations were adapted to the inspection cycle as well as the inspection cycle was adapted to the technical and legal terms of the IED. As a result the guidance book provides a common understanding of the technical and legal inspection terms used in the IED and helps to establish a level playing field in applying the new inspection obligations of the IED in the IMPEL member countries.

In Chapter 5 of the guidance a collection of all relevant articles on inspection is given with a description of the content and what it means as well as a link into the guidance book to the relevant part of the inspection cycle.
