Strengthening chemicals management in Best Available Techniques Reference Documents, Reports of the Finnish Environment Institute 48/2021

The centre of this report is the analysis of the information exchange under the IED, that results in BREFs and corresponding BAT conclusions. This report presents proposals how relevant information on chemicals can be more systematically addressed at the right time during BREF reviews. Special emphasis is given to possibilities to better use available data generated in the context of other pertinent EU legislation. The report not only proposes general measures for improvement of the BAT information exchange but also focuses on what specifically has to be improved, by which means and how it could be done.

Report: Analysis of the interfaces, possible synergies or gaps between Industrial Emission Directive, REACH Regulation, Water Framework Directive, Marine Strategy Framework Directive and the POP Regulation concerning hazardous substances

The report aims to deliver recommendations for better use of information on hazardous substances generated under key legal frameworks for development of BREFs.
