Abstract

These Regulations in part implement Directive 2010/75/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on industrial emissions (integrated pollution prevention and control) (Recast) in the United Kingdom. The United Kingdom has produced a Transitional National Plan based on Article 30(2) of the Directive and has submitted it to the European Commission. Combustion plants which are specified in a Transitional National Plan are exempted from the requirement to comply with emission limit values for certain pollutants. These Regulations require the Secretary of State to provide to the Environment Agency certain information and the Environment Agency to establish and maintain a register which contains the information identified in Schedule 1. Other provisions, among other things, define duties of the national environmental regulators and make amendments to other Regulations.
