Abstract

These Regulations implement in Scotland the provisions of Council Directive 1999/13/EC on the limitation of emissions of volatile organic compounds due to the use of organic solvents in certain activities and installations. The Directive requires all installations carrying out activities listed in Annex I of the Directive above the thresholds in Annex IIA of the Directive to comply with certain emission limit values (SED installations). The majority of SED installations are already regulated under either the Pollution Prevention and Control (Scotland) Regulations 2000 (S.S.I. 2000/323) or Part 1 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. As a result, these Regulations adjust the transitional provisions under the 2000 Regulations to align them with the requirements of the Directive.
