An Industrial Emissions Licence (IED)/ Integrated Pollution Control licence is a single licence issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) which controls all emissions to the environment associated with a facility. IED/ IPC licensed facilities must comply with Best Available Techniques Guidelines for their sector.The Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) (2010/75/EU), as it has been transposed into Irish legislation, has changed the existing situation and has introduced a third class of licence that can be granted by the Agency, the Industrial Emissions Licence (IE). Provisions of the Directive/Irish legislation will follow the implementation dates below:
– implementation in Ireland from 23 April 2013 and applies to any new installations from this date onward
– implementation from 07 January 2014 in respect of existing installation
– implementation by 07 July 2015 in respect of industrial activities not subject to the current IPPC Directive (2008/1/EC)
-existing large combustion plants do not become subject to the requirements of Chapter III of the IED until 01 January 2016.
