Cabinet of Ministers Regulations No. 182 in 2013 (on 2 April. 29. § 17) the rules on emissions from stationary pollution sources limit the development of the draft Issued in accordance with the law "on pollution" in the second subparagraph of article 11, paragraph 1 of the i. General questions 1. determines the order in which the developing stationary source emission limit (hereinafter the project), as well as the content of the project, in order to prevent, restrict and control air pollutant emissions from stationary sources of pollution. 2. Project development to equipment which provides the emission of pollutants in the air, for permission to (A) or (B) the categories of polluting activity (hereinafter licence). The project, together with the application for authorisation shall submit the operator of national environmental service (hereinafter service). 3. If the operator permission requests repeatedly due to the expiry of the term of a permit or permit conditions for performing review and is not intended for stationary pollution source physical characteristics and emission changes, the service adopted a decision to release the operator from the obligation to draw up a new project. That decision shall be taken on the basis of the public limited liability company "Latvian environment, geology and Meteorology Centre" (hereinafter referred to as the Centre) of the information provided on the current level of pollution, if the concentration of the pollutant amount is obtained by summing the project the maximum concentration of equipment issued to the background concentrations shall not exceed the upper assessment threshold of air pollution for those pollutants for which there is a specific, or 70% of the required limit value or target value of those substances that the evaluation of air pollution are not defined. Information about an existing pollution levels requires the operator to the Centre in accordance with the provisions of the arrangements referred to in chapter IV. 4.

Calculation parameters are characterized by specifying the calculation period (for example, year, day, hour), the time interval for the calculation of average size (for example, 30 minutes, an hour, 24 hours), the calculated percentile and other parameters used. The image identifies the areas where compliance is not rated for air quality standards, as well as areas where non-compliance is projected air quality standards or guidelines specified limit value or target value. Izkliež card draw up a transparent scale. If necessary, the project can add multiple maps at different scales; 21.3. the tables (annex 4), indicating the maximum total concentration of the pollutant outside the work environment (calculations on computer printouts or justified in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 33) and point or cell centroīd (network of the geometrical centre of the cell) coordinates, in which it will be observed, as well as facilities in part of the pollution emitted by the sum concentration. Also indicate the total concentration ratio of air quality regulations or guidelines prescribed limit value or target value (percentage). 35. The Operator shall be accompanied by a computer program (which is used in calculations) input and scatter the results of calculations on paper or in electronic form. 36. This rule 34.1. the results referred to in (a) are used to represent the location of the map scale 1:25,000 or larger scale, related to geographic coordinates and describe the equipment relative to the location of the populated areas, residential building, industrial zone, public and trade area, as well as specially protected natural areas protection zones, mikroliegum and, if possible, to the nearest air monitoring stations. On at least one map operator represents all point source locations, as well as the area and type of source volume location and identify the source of emissions by source code. Information about the nature of the terrain and the local building supply at least the level of detail used in the pollutant dispersion modelling. If the application used in the map referred to in this paragraph are plotted objects and territories, this card can use base pollutant dispersion modelling results. 37. The Operator project design analyse pollutant dispersion calculations and assess air quality compliance with laws, regulations and guidelines. 38. If existing polluting activities not intended for stationary pollution source physical characteristics and emission changes, but scattering calculation results exceed air quality standards or guidelines specified limit values or target values, taking into account the changes in the background, the operator project includes measures to ensure that the deadline will be achieved in compliance with air quality standards or guidelines for specific limit values or target values. Measures include organizational and engineering operator of mitigation measures as well as measures to limit emissions as a result of bad weather periods, if this is possible during air quality regulatory limits or you receive complaints about the air quality. The operator shall take the pollutant dispersion calculations to support the projections of time and extent to which the planned measures will ensure air quality improvement and compliance with air quality standards and guidelines. If background concentration increase is not related to the operator, polluting the local authority shall draw up an action programme to improve air quality in accordance with the provisions on air quality. 39. Data necessary for dissipation of pollutants calculated with the computer program shall be accompanied by electronic means.
