I the Directive 96/61/EC of the Council of 24 September, concerning the prevention and integrated control of pollution, subsequently repealed by Directive 2008/1/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 January 2008, on the prevention and integrated control of pollution, introduced a concept integrating of environmental vision, as well as the need to obtain written permission (integrated environmental authorisation) that should be coordinated When the procedure involves several competent authorities.

This directive created a new figure of environmental intervention, the integrated environmental authorisation, in which determines all the environmental conditions which must comply with the activity in question, including the fixing of limit values of emission of pollutants to air, water, waste and soil. Improve forecasting and control system integrated pollution reviewing the regime aras integrated environmental authorization of reducing unnecessary administrative burdens in order to respond to the need to obtain public and environmental health improvements ensuring, at the same time, profitability, and encouraging technical innovation.

The above-mentioned Community legislation has been repealed by Directive 2010/75/EU, of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 November, on industrial emissions (integrated pollution prevention and control), revising the legislation on industrial installations in order to simplify and clarify the existing provisions by which consists of a consolidation: Council Directive 78/176/EEC , of 20 February 1978 on waste from the titanium dioxide industry; Directive 82/883/EEC of the Council of 3 December 1982, on the modalities of monitoring and control of media affected by waste from the titanium dioxide industry; Directive 92/112/EEC of the Council of 15 December 1992, by which the harmonization of programmes of reduction regime, fixed with a view to the eventual elimination of pollution caused by waste from the titanium dioxide industry; Directive 1999/13/EC of the Council of 11 March 1999 on the limitation of emissions of volatile organic compounds due to the use of organic solvents in certain activities and installations; Directive 2000/76/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 December 2000 on the incineration of waste; Directive 2001/80/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2001 on limitation of emissions of certain pollutants from large combustion plants; and, finally, Directive 2008/1/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 January 2008, on the prevention and integrated control of pollution.

The transposition of the provisions basic of this directive are carried out by the law 5/2013, of 11 June, by which modify the law 16/2002, of July 1, prevention and control integrated pollution and the law 22/2011, 28 July, waste and soil contaminated, while the precepts of distinctly technical and the development of the annex 1 of the law 16/2002 July 1, they have been incorporated in the regulation which approves this Royal Decree, which contains a number of new features that are explained below.

II the Royal Decree contains a single article which approves the regulation of industrial emissions, and development of law 16/2002, July 1, integrated pollution prevention and control (hereinafter, regulation of industrial emissions), two additional provisions: the first on the containment of public expenditure, and the second on the rules of procedure applicable , and a transitional provision for certain industrial activities.

It contains a single repealing provision which comes to repeal the Royal Decree 653/2003, of 30 may, on incineration of waste; and the Real Decree 509/2007, of April 20, which approves the regulation for the development and execution of law 16/2002, of July 1, integrated pollution prevention and control.

It also contains eight final provisions. The first final provision modifies the Decree 833/1975 of 6 February developing the law 38/1972, of 22 December, for the protection of the atmospheric environment by determining the legal validity of its annex IV.

The second final provision modifies the Royal Decree 117/2003, 31 January, on the limitation of emissions of volatile organic compounds due to the use of solvents in certain activities. However, must be taken into account that articles 58, 59, 63 and annex VII of the directive of emissions are already incorporated in the Royal Decree mentioned, so it has not been considered necessary its implementation.

The third final provision modifies elReal Decree 430/2004, dated 12 March, which lays down new rules on the limitation of emissions of certain pollutants from large combustion plants, and certain conditions for the control of emissions are set into the atmosphere from oil refineries the fourth final provision modifies Royal Decree 508/2007 , 20 April, which regulates the supply of information on emissions of the E-PRTR regulation and environmental authorisations integrated, in the terms referred to in the annex 5.

The fifth final provision establishes the title competence.

The sixth final provision, establishes rules enabling.

The seventh final provision establishes the incorporation of Community law, and finally, disposal eighth orders the following day of its publication in the «Official Gazette» the entry into force of the regulation.

The regulation of industrial emissions contains six chapters and four annexes. Chapter I, establishes general provisions, such as the object and the scope of application, definitions, the promotion of emerging techniques, electronic processing and the applicable sanctioning regime.

Chapter II has been organized into three sections: the first section dedicated to the common principles of the environmental authorisation procedures integrated, the second section to the simplified procedure of substantial modification and revision of the integrated environmental authorisation, and the third section coordination with environmental impact assessment procedures and other administrative intervention of State competition.

Section 1 establishes the scope of the integrated environmental authorisation, establishing himself as a novelty than a same authorization understand activities listed in annex 1 and other related that meet certain requirements, also establishes the possibility that emission limit values are global for the pollutants generated by several industrial activities carried out in a facility. Another novelty is that the authorization may be valid for several installations or parts of an installation operated by different owners. It also sets the contents of the urban report Town Hall, the request that the holder should be presented and the integrated environmental authorisation. Concerning the content of both the request and authorization, as a novelty, establishes the need to identify each of the foci of emission of pollutants atmospheric. The purpose is to get that you carry out sorting all activities potentially polluting the atmosphere included in the integrated environmental authorisation.

It continues the section 1 with an express reference to the environmental permit processing and communications to be performed to the Basin Agency when the operation of the installation involves discharges to inland waters of watersheds managed by the General Administration of the State.

On the other hand, as is performed from the transposition of Directive 2006/123/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 December 2006 on services in the internal market, in order to reduce barriers in access to services and your exercise activities, regulates both the start of the activity and its cessation simplifying procedures, reducing administrative burdens, without undermining the environmental protection through the prevention and control of pollution. In this regard, and notwithstanding what have the autonomous communities, a time given the integrated environmental authorisation is established within five years for the start of the activity, being sufficient statement responsible for indicating the date and the fulfilment of the conditions laid down in the authorization, without prejudice to their subsequent inspection by the competent authority in the terms provided for in chapter III. He ends this section with the assumptions and conditions that can produce temporary cessation, novelty introduced in the regulation, and the closure of the facility.


The 2nd section regulates the simplified procedure of substantial modification of the integrated environmental authorisation and the procedure of review of the same. The first set are the criteria which can lead to substantial modification, the content of the application and the procedure of substantial change, whose decision must be given within a maximum of six months, meaning rejected after it. The review must be ex officio by the competent organ, who previously asked to organs that should pronounce on the different environmental matters the dossier to be submitted by the holder, following the procedure set for substantial change.

Section 3 regulates the coordination of the procedure of integrated environmental authorisation in installations that require environmental impact assessment and other means of State administrative intervention, in which case it will be substantive organ which perform public information jointly for the integrated environmental authorisation, the assessment of environmental impact and substantive authorization.

Chapter III contains the regulation of inspection and control of industrial plants. In accordance with article 29 of the law 16/2002, of July 1, the competent bodies to carry out the tasks of inspection will be an environmental inspection system and all facilities will be covered by a plan and programme, reviewed periodically. The environmental inspector, officials with the status of authority, may be accompanied by technical advisers to perform inspection work. Also the result of the on-site visit is recorded in a report. It ends the chapter with the provisional measures that come in the event of a serious risk to human health or environment.

Chapter IV, establishes special provisions for installations of incineration and co-incineration of waste, incorporating the industrial emissions directive. This chapter establishes the scope of application, the system of authorization to which they are subjected, the content of the application for authorization, the content of authorisations for this type of installation, how the delivery and reception of waste, the conditions of design, equipment, construction and operation of the facility, the necessary authorization should be done to change the conditions of exploitation , the limit values of emission to the atmosphere and waters, waste incineration, the periodicity of measurements in the atmosphere and water, abnormal operating conditions, verification of the value of energy efficiency of domestic waste incineration facilities, and, finally, the presentation of reports and information to the public in such facilities.
