The document lays down rules for data collection, prescribes the process of drawing up and reviewing BAT reference documents, and defines quality assurance measure as required by Article 13(3)(c) and (d) of the Industrial Emission Directive 2010/75/EU.

Please note that these documents might be updated to reflect the requirements of the IED.
