Translations of Executive Summaries of BREFs are only available for the BREFs published under the IPPC Directive (2008/1/EC) but not any more for those updated under the Industrial Emissions Directive (2010/75/EU) since they do not contain any more Executive Summaries.

The mission of the JRC is to provide customer-driven scientific and technical support for the conception, development, implementation and monitoring of EU policies. As a service of the European Commission, the JRC functions as a reference centre of science and technology for the Union. Close to the policy-making process, it serves the common interest of the Member States, while being independent of special interests, whether private or national.
