EU directive on industrial emissions (IED-RL) Monitoring program of the district of Oldenburg in accordance with Section 52a, Paragraph 2 of the BImSchG

Status: 01.12.2014

1. Preliminary remarks

Directive 2010/75 / EU on industrial emissions (IED-RL) came into force at the beginning of 2011. The IED directive has now been implemented in national law with the law implementing this directive of April 8, 2013 and two article ordinances of May 2, 2013 .

The aim of the IED guideline is to avoid or reduce as much as possible the environmental pollution of air, water and soil caused by industrial plants. For this purpose, the industrial plants should be introduced to the so-called best available techniques (BAT). In addition, the new IED guideline provides further requirements for system monitoring and reporting.

According to ยง 52a BImSchG, the monitoring plan to be drawn up should ensure a planned and traceable monitoring of the systems falling under the scope of the IED Directive. This monitoring plan was drawn up by the State of Lower Saxony and announced as a circular from the Ministry for the Environment, Energy and Climate Protection on November 12, 2013 in the Lower Saxony Ministerial Gazette.

The current version of this monitoring plan is available at


In appendices 3 and 4 of the monitoring plan, the industrial and animal husbandry facilities are listed, which in Lower Saxony fall under the scope of the IED directive (in the appendix of the 4th BImSchV in column d marked with "E").
