The Executive Summary of each BREF document is translated by the European Commission into all Member State languages and can be found here. If the list is not accessible please click on browse categories, then choose > European Commission > Environment > IPPC BREFs Translation > and finally click on > Library on the top left menu which will display a full list of translated summaries in all EU languages.
• French translations of complete (B)REFs can be found here.
• German translations of the most important parts of the (B)REFs, Executive Summaries or complete BREFs can be found here.
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.
We are also aware that some Member States translate other parts of BREF documents and for more information you will have to contact the relevant Member State. However, some links can be found on our website within each reference document.
