Monitoring of Emissions to Air and Water from IED Installations


The monitoring of emissions to air and water represents an important element in preventing and reducing pollution from industrial installations and in ensuring a high level of protection of the environment taken as a whole. Therefore, the Industrial Emissions Directive 2010/75/EU (IED) addresses the monitoring of emissions in a number of instances.

This JRC Reference Report on Monitoring (ROM) summarises information on the monitoring of emissions to air and water from IED installations, thereby providing practical guidance for the application of the Best Available Techniques (BAT) conclusions on monitoring in order to help competent authorities to define monitoring requirements in the permits of IED installations.

Moreover, the information and recommendations provided by this document may help the Technical Working Groups (TWGs) to derive BAT conclusions during the drawing up and review of BAT Reference documents (BREFs).
