IED inspection of animal husbandry facilities: implementation - on-site inspections

The European Directive 2010/75/EU on industrial emissions (integrated pollution prevention and control), or IED or IE Directive ,, regulates the authorisation, operation and decommissioning of industrial plants in the EU.

The Directive entered into force on 06.01.2011 and was transposed into national law by the Member States by 07.01.2013. The law and the two regulations implementing the Directive entered into force on 02.05.2013.

The aim of the IED Directive is to avoid, reduce and eliminate as far as possible the environmental impact on air, water and soil from industrial installations.

The installations concerned are subject to special monitoring and must be regularly inspected as part of an on-site inspection. This must be carried out every 3 years and for animal husbandry plants subject to the reporting requirements under the PRTR Regulation (PRTR installations)(Pollutant Release and Transfer Register = pollutant release and movement register) every 2 years.

Plants that reach the relevant animal place numbers and also exceed certain pollution thresholds are subject to PRTR. The ammonia value is particularly important for animal husbandry. This is 10,000 kg/year.

Process flow

By decree of 23.10.13 (Monitoring Plan, Nds. MBl. 41/2013, p. 781), the Lower Saxony Ministry of The Environment, Energy and Climate Protection has determined how these on-site visits should be carried out. The competent authority shall carry them out and shall use the inspection report printed in the decree for this purpose.

All areas relevant to the environment must be reviewed. It is also necessary to check whether the stable buildings (including the associated ancillary installations, such as slurry deposits) are operated as they have been requested and approved.

The results of the on-site inspection shall be documented in the inspection report. In the event of deficiencies, the competent authority shall arrange for them to be rectified.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the district, the Hanover region, the district-free city and the large independent city.

Requirements

The installations covered by the Directive include intensive livestock farming or rearing of poultry and pigs with:

  • 40,000 or more poultry sites,
  • 2,000 or more fattening pigs (pigs over 30 kg),
  • 750 or more sow places including associated piglet breeding grounds (piglets up to less than 30 kg live weight and
  • mixed holdings with a value of 100 or more of the sum of the Per Hundred shares to which the number of seats is exhausted.

Which documents are required?

  • Application for approval and communication
  • Maintenance logs
  • if necessary, measurement reports

Further documents may be required, which will be determined by the competent authority on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the appropriate body.

What are the fees?

Fees are incurred under the General Fees Regulations (AllGO) of the Land of Lower Saxony, which are to be borne by the persons in charge of the plant. The amount of the fee depends on the time required.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

The control shall normally be announced in good time before the review with a view to keeping the necessary documents.

The result of the inspection shall be communicated to the operator no later than 2 months after the date and made available to the public no later than 4 months after the date. The conclusion of the inspection report shall be made actively available to the public by the competent body.
