An operator operating an installation described in this Regulation including a combustion plant, a waste incineration plant and/or a general waste incineration plant must have a permit. A permit may be issued for one installation or part thereof or for several of the same operator's installations or parts thereof located on the same site (site, with adjacent plots or plots separated only by engineering infrastructure). For two installations with the permit for more installations or parts thereof must include conditions to ensure that: (a) each plant or part thereof complies with the requirements of this Regulation. The permit shall include the name of the whole installation or several installations, design capacity, owner/manager, legal rights and responsibilities of the operator(s). A permit shall be issued for an indefinite period. A permit shall be issued or amended only after a selection of the planned economic activity has been made due to environmental impact assessment. Basic principles determining permit terms and conditions shall be as follows: (a) installation must be operated without violating the established environmental quality standards and comply with environmental protection and public health safety legislation; (b) pollution prevention principle must be applied; (c) efficient and rational use of natural resources and energy efficiency; (d) waste prevention, recycling and re-use of waste; (e) assessment of accidents and application of necessary measures to prevent them; (f) in the event of definitive cessation of activities, application of necessary measures to avoid any risk of pollution and restoration of the initial conditions of the operational site; and (g) reduction of the use of hazardous substances and gradual replacement thereof with less hazardous substances. Pollution reports must determine the state of soil. If the operator is not required to prepare a pollution status report, upon definite cessation of activities, he must carry out a preliminary ecogeological study and, if necessary, take actions necessary to eliminate, control, limit the spread or reduce hazardous substances, in order to prevent significant risk to human health or the environment due to soil pollution or groundwater pollution. Soil pollution report must indicate the possible reasons for pollution on soil surface and in the deeper layers of the soil.
