Translations of certain BAT conclusions (BATC) into non-EU UN official languages (i.e. Arabic, Chinese, Russian) have been provided by the European Commission’s translation services (with no revision or guarantee on actual accuracy in relation to the original text in English because of the technical nature of the text). The original EN version provides the definitive text for understanding the BATC; whilst every effort has been made to ensure a faithful translation, it has not been checked by experts familiar with the sector.

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.
