Does IPPC offer Total Compliance?

Some Part A installations may be subject to the Asbestos, Petrol Vapour or Titanium Dioxide Directives. Due to the low numbers of affected Part A installations in these cases and the technical nature of the requirements, no specific Government guidance is being produced for these Directives. However, guidance on the relevant requirements can be found in the General Guidance Manual for the Asbestos and Petrol Vapour Directives and in technical guidance produced by the Environment Agency for the Titanium Dioxide Directive.

Some Part A installations may also be subject to EC-derived legislation on the control of major accident hazards. Directive 96/82/EC, as amended by Directive 2003/105/EC, aims to prevent major accidents involving dangerous substances and limit the consequences to people and the environment of any that do occur. The Directives are implemented in Great Britain by the Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations 1999 (amended in 2005). The Health and Safety Executive and the Environment Agency, who enforce the COMAH Regulations in England and Wales, work closely together to avoid potential conflicts between COMAH and other environmental legislation, such as IPPC. Further information on the environmental aspects of the legislation is available on the Environment Agency website at: www.environment-agency.gov.uk/epr.
