Monitoring of emissions from IED-installations

The aim of this document is to inform competent authorities and operators of the general aspects of the monitoring of emissions from installations under the scope of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED, 2010/75/EU) (and, most likely, is also relevant to other agricultural/industrial installations) and to bring together background information on monitoring that may be of use to the European IPPC Bureau and Technical Working Group (TWG) members when working on sectoral BAT reference documents (BREFs) and more specifically on the BAT conclusions, the key parts of the BREFs.

This document addresses general principles and other relevant aspects concerning the monitoring of emissions and associated parameters that are the basis for deciding the approach and frequency of monitoring, as well as for the elaboration and use of monitoring data. Therefore, this document aims to promote the accuracy, reliability, representativity and comparability of monitoring data from agricultural/industrial installations.
