IPPC Directive adopted, IPPC for small firms on the way

The EC Directive on integrated pollution prevention and control (IPPC) was finally adopted at the end of September.1 The legislation will force some significant changes to UK policy, and an initial consultation on how it should be implemented is expected early next year. Meanwhile, the European Commission has circulated a discussion document on a follow-up Directive on IPPC for smaller businesses - although this time it intends to allow Member States considerable flexibility as to how they pursue an integrated approach, and will confine the legislation to dangerous substances with long-range effects.
