HELPING INDUSTRY RESPOND TO ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATION.

The United Kingdom-based Environmental Analysis Co-operative has announced a new programme of work, part-funded by the Environment Agencies, designed to help industry respond in a practical and cost-effective manner to the regulatory requirements of the new Integrated Prevention and Pollution Control Directive (IPPC) (96/61/EC). The new programme builds on the Co-operative's well-established programme of work on the current IPPC, on which two further reports have recently been published. The new programme will have several elements, and grant aid from the Environment Agencies will enable work to begin immediately on the first two:

- Co-ordination of Environmental Compliance under IPPC. A review of the information and procedural requirements of IPPC and the overlaps and links with other environment-related legislation. The aim is to develop guidance that would help operators to meet all these requirements in the most effective and efficient way, and as an integral part of their business management.

- Environmental Criteria for Regulatory Appraisals. A review of the criteria and methods that could be considered for assessing and comparing the overall environmental impact of industrial processes in the context of IPPC applications. The aim is to identify measures of environmental effects that would be relevant, practicable and effective for demonstrating a high general level of protection of the environment as a whole.
