The project aims at strengthening of administrative capacity at national level and including local
level for transposition and implementation of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED). The project
foresees the preparation for development of primary and secondary legislation in accordance with
IED and assessment of the economic impact of implementation of IED.
In the beneficiary country there is no legislation which fully transposed EID. However IPPC
Directive is fully transposed in the Law on Environment (LE) and several secondary legislations.
Namely, in the LE the IPPC Directive is transposed in the Chapter XII. Several secondary
legislations were adopted that regulate the procedure and the manner of issuing as well as form and
substance of the IPPC permits. However, two more chapters within the LE are related to the IPPC
Directive, they are Chapter XIII – General Environmental Audit and XIV Adjustment Permits with
an Operational Plan. The beneficiary country's system of IPPC permits recognises two types of
integrated environmental permits: A-integrated environmental permit (A-IPPC permits) and B-
integrated environmental permits (B-IPPC permits). The responsible authority for issuing A-IPPC
permits is the Administration of Environment, a public body within the MoEPP, while the
responsible authority for issuing the B-IPPC permit is the local administration of the municipality in
whose territory the installation is located, except installations which are located in the protected
areas, on which case the B-IPPC permit will be issued by the MoEPP as well as in cases when the
Local level authorities do not have the capacity for issuing permits. According to LE, A-IPPC
permits is for installations (A installations) which comply with capacity and industry sectors as
stipulated in Annex I of the IPPC Directive, and B-IPPC permits for installations (B installations)
which are smaller than one stipulated under the IPPC Directive. For those installations which cannot
meet standards as stipulated in the LE and are defined as existing installations, (operational before
2009), they are obliged to obtain A or B adjustment permit with adjustment plan (A or B adjustment 4
permit) by which installations are given time frame and actions that they should take in order to meet
IPPC standards. A installations should comply with BAT while B installations should meet emission
level standards. According to the LE, IPPC standards should be met in general the latest by 1 April
2014. However for big scale A installations which need significant improvement in their technology
the deadline can be prolonged for five more years until 2019.
It is estimated that in the beneficiary country there is about 140 A installations and about 500 B
installations.
Until March 2014, 135 applications for obtaining A or B adjustment permits and A or B IPPC permit
were received within the MoEPP, while only 69 were issued. There is no precise data about
applications for adjustment permits or B-IPPC permit for B installations; however the municipality
by February 2014 have issued 127 permits for B installations.
In accordance with the LE (Article 104) MoEPP had established Scientific Technical Committee on
BAT. The main role of the Committee is to prepare and adopt as well, the guidelines on National
reference documents for determining the best available techniques in the A-IPPC permit. So far the
Committee has adopted the following guidelines:
1. Sectoral Guidance for BAT on ferrous metal processing.
2. Sectoral Guidance for BAT on monitoring system
3. Sectoral Guidance for BAT on non-ferrous metal processing.
4. Sectoral Guidance for BAT on Intensive rearing of poultry and pigs.
5. Sectoral Guidance for BAT on iron and steel production.
6. Sectoral Guidance for BAT on waste water and waste air treatment.
7. Sectoral Guidance for BAT on cement and lime production.
8. Sectoral Guidance for BAT on ceramics production.
In terms of institutional framework, a responsible institution for implementation of IPPC regulations
is the Department for Industrial Pollution and Risk Management (DIPRM) within of the
Administration of Environment (AE). AE is a public body under the frame of the MoEPP. DIPRM is
consisted of three Units as follows: Unit on IPPC, Unit on Chemicals and Industrial Accidents, and
the third one is Unit on Risk Management and Atmosphere. At the present, the total number of
employees in this Department is 14. Direct responsibility for implementation of IPPC has IPPC Unit.
In the IPPC Unit at the moment there are 10 employees, six of them are advisors on IPPC (Permit
writers), one is holding the position of junior associate, two technical assistances and the head of the
Unit. All these civil servants require further strengthening of the capacity for implementation and
enforcement on IPPC legislation and as well for the transposition and implementation of the new
EID.
At local level not all municipalities would have separate unit or Department which is responsible
only for environmental issues. In many cases there are only one or two civil servants who work on
environmental issues which are not sufficient in terms of needed capacity for implementation of
municipal competencies in environment. In addition these civil servants need to strengthen their
capacity with implementation of IPPC legislation and in particular in adapting with the new
obligations arising by EID.
This project will pursue to transpose EID by developing primary and secondary legislation, and to
development of plans and procedures for implementing the IED, to comprehend economic aspects of
implementation of this directive and the impact for industrial sector and furthermore, to develop pilot
projects (drafting permits in accordance with EID) for promoting active participation of the central
institutions, municipalities, civil society organisations, industry representatives and other concerned
stakeholders.5
Under component 4 of this Twinning project, a Priority list of additional equipment necessary for
implementation of new Industrial Emissions Directive 2010/75/EU shall be prepared in accordance
with the MS best practices and lessons learned. During the implementation of this Twining project,
based on the project’s outputs and results, in particular when developing the manuals for
implementation of the IED, guidance on determination of ELVs in A and B-IPPC installations, and
when assessing 2 issued IPPC permits and drafting 6 permits in accordance to EID; it shall be
analysed if and what additional equipment is needed, than the one already supplied under TAIB 2011
project. Consequently within Twining project a Priority list will take into considerations new
obligations for MoEPP and State Environmental Inspectorate arising from the new Law on Control
on Emission from Industry and new manuals and guidance developed under the this twining project
that will secure better implementation and enforcement of IED in accordance to these legal
documents. Priority list shall contain, but not limited to IT equipment, measuring devices, software
for managing a list of IPPC A and B installations and following the progress, and other equipment.
This Priority list is going to include equipment which should not be supplied under IPA TAIB 2010
and IPA TAIB 2011 supply contracts, as additional equipment.
