1 1 Short overview of the implementation of IPPC, LCP, Seveso II, Waste Landfill and Incineration directives Short overview of the implementation of IPPC, LCP, Seveso II, Waste Landfill and Incineration directives Republic of CROATIA ECENA 3 rd Plenary meeting September 18-19, 2008 Istanbul, Turkey Ministry of Environmental Protection, Physical Planning and Construction Josipa Blažević-Perušić Anita Pokrovac Patekar

2 2 Status of IPPC Transposition  Partially transposed into the Croatian legislation through the Environmental Protection Act (OG, No. 110/07) and the Regulation on information and participation of the public and public concerned in environmental protection issues (OG, No. 64/08).  Regulation on integrated environmental protection requirements based on Art Environmental Protection Act (OG, No. 110/07) is currently in the process of adoption/public consultation process started 26 th August MEPPPC IPPC Directive/1

4 4 IPPC Directive/2a Cards 2004 Project Objectives The overall objective is to increase Croatia’s capacity to meet EU environmental standards - to establish capacity to comply with the requirements of the IPPC Directive in the MEPPPC and in the enterprises that fall within the scope of the Directive. Activities –to develop written procedures by which the legislation will be implemented, –to conduct 20 BAT site visits at future IPPC installations, –to issue 6 pilot IPPC permits for future IPPC installations. Results achieved –completion of the Legal and Administrative Analysis, and the Options Paper on the IPPC procedures that is currently under discussion, –commencement of work on 4 (four) pilot permits, –14 BAT site visits have been carried out, –eight cross-sector and one sectoral (LCP) BAT Guidance Notes have been prepared.
