Translations of certain BAT conclusions (BATC) into Arabic, Chinese and 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). The original English version provides the definitive text for understanding the BAT conclusions; whilst every effort has been made to ensure correctness, the translations into Arabic, Chinese and Russian have not been checked by experts familiar with the sector.
The European Commission plans to translate all BAT conclusions into Arabic, Chinese and Russian. The following table will be updated as these become available.
Translations of Executive Summaries of BREFs published under the former IPPC Directive (2008/1/EC) are available in CIRCABC. If the list of translations 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.
Executive Summaries are not available for BREFs established under the Industrial Emissions Directive (2010/75/EU) since these do not contain any more such summaries. Instead, the BAT conclusions of BREFs under the Industrial Emissions Directive (2010/75/EU) are translated into the official EU languages and can be obtained in the tab 'Reference Documents' by clicking on 'BATC' of the respective BREF.
Furthermore, several EU Member States have translated complete BREFs or parts thereof:
• French translations of complete BREFs can be found here.
• German translations of most important parts of BREFs, Executive Summaries or complete BREFs can be found here.
• Spanish translations of complete BREFs and BAT conclusions can be found here.
