General questions 1. determines: 1.1. induced pollutant smell detection methods; 1.2. the procedures for limiting polluting activity caused by the odor from spreading.
2. the terms used in the rules: 2.1 the odor unit (ou)-smelling substances the quantity injected per cubic meter, neutral gases under standard conditions causes a physiological reaction olfactory organs, at least half of the members of the Group of assessors smell; 2.2. the gas under standard conditions – gas if the pressure at a temperature of 293 oK is 101.3 kPa; 2.3. smells assessors – people group, established in accordance with the provisions referred to in paragraph 3 of the base or reference; 2.4. the concentration of the odor-odour units (ou) per cubic metre of gas under standard conditions; 2.5. target smell – air quality regulations for odors that cause or may cause permanent or periodic smell disorders and expressed with the odor concentration (ou/m3) under standard conditions as the average concentration of the scent, which is specified using a temporary concentration measurements an hour; 2.6. smell perception threshold-the concentration of smelling, if at least half the stink of the members of the Group of assessors (in accordance with the provisions referred to in paragraph 3 of the base or reference conditions) confirms the presence of scent and if it's a 1 out/m3; 2.7. the disturbance of smell, smell a negative effects on the well-being of people; 2.8. the smell nuisance threshold-the concentration of smelling, if at least half the stink of the members of the Group of assessors (in accordance with the provisions referred to in paragraph 3 of the base or reference conditions) confirms the negative effects of odors on human well-being. Smell disorder is greater than the threshold odour perception threshold and may exceed the target values or be less than this depending on the frequency, intensity of the smell, the duration, the hedonic tone (revolted) and space character.
II. determination of the Odour 3. Odor concentration in the measurement for the base method (reference) use the standard LVS EN 13725:2003 "air quality. Determination of the concentration of odours by dynamic olfaktometrij method referred to "or other equivalent or a better method.
4. Odor concentration measurements according to the standard LVS EN ISO/IEC 17025:2001 L accredited laboratories for which accreditation has published a statement in the newspaper "journal". 5. the assessment of the concentration of the odor is allowed to use the computer program of dispersal of pollutants mentioned in the Cabinet's April 22, 2003 regulations no 200 "for emissions from stationary sources of pollution limit project development". The modeling process of the odor concentration compared with that rule 6, 7 and 8 of this smell target value. 6. Smell target-5 ou/m3, not to be exceeded more than seven 24-hour annual. The smell is allowed to exceed the target at a time when the implementation of the provisions of paragraphs 17 and 19 of these measures or the programme of action for the prevention of odours (hereinafter referred to as the programme), developed in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 20.
7. Agricultural land will reek target-8 ou/m3, not to be exceeded more than seven 24-hour annual. The smell of the target value of utilised agricultural area will exceed the allowed period, determined in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 22 and 23. 8. Stranglehold-10 target ou/m3 – set in (A), (B) and (C) polluting activities of category, not to be exceeded more than seven 24-hour annual. Polluting activities target the specific smell allowed to exceed, if those provisions are complied with the conditions referred to in paragraph 14.1., as well as the time when measures are being implemented to prevent smell in accordance with the provisions of 14.2.
III. Procedures for limiting polluting activity caused by the odor spread 9. regional environmental administration (hereinafter referred to as the Government) appreciates the smell nuisance. If smell disorder assessment results show that the smell has been exceeded, the administration target prepares the decision on measures for the reduction of interference the smell. 10. the decision on the measures of interference reduction and odor smell disorder evaluation results the Board shall submit to the operator, the legal or natural person who has created the pollutant activities in the smell disorders, local government, as well as the Administration put website on the internet. 11. by paragraph 10 of these rules of receipt of the decision referred to the operator, the legal or natural person or local Government takes steps to reduce disturbance of smell month submit to the Government a plan of measures for the harmonisation of odor elimination of distortions and the timetable for implementation. The agreed action plan and timetable authority placed the site on the internet. 12.
