What is at issue?

In 2013 the Industrial Emissions Directive has come into force in Germany.
This directive -called IED – rules the approval, operation, monitoring and decommissioning of industrial plants within the European Union.
The directive adopts the provisions of several previously valid guidelines, and it also introduces new regulations. One of these is the implementation of a baseline report in terms of a preventive environmental protection.

Who is affected and how?

In 2013 the European Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) has been embodied into national German law.
All new or substantially changed industrial plants – as far as they use or produce hazardous substances - must now implement a baseline report prior to initial operation.

Investigation Concept

The first step is the draw up of an investigation concept, assessing whether the implementation of a baseline report is required. The investigation concept is specifically focused on the industrial properties, the intended operations and the substances used at the plant.

Baseline Report

The investigation concept is the basis for the development of the baseline report. The baseline report collects all information regarding the plant-specific hazardous substances, their assessment, as well as the execution of soil and groundwater investigations. This document ensures that you are on the safe and legal side.
