Abstract: Council Directive 96/61/EC concerning integrated pollution prevention and control (IPPC) requires Member States to introduce a system of operating permits for certain categories of industrial activities as given in Annex 1 to the Directive. The permit shall include conditions and emission limit values based on ”best available techniques” (BAT) but taking into account local considerations such as the technical characteristics of the installation and any special needs of the local environment. Article 16(2) provides that there shall be an information exchange between Member States and the industries concerned on ”best available techniques”, associated monitoring and developments in them. This information exchange has become to be known as ”The Sevilla Process” which has been running now for just over 8 years and is heading towards completion of the first round of BAT reference documents.
