The E-PRTR Regulation aims to provide the public with accessible information on pollutant releases and transfers and increase public participation in environmental decision-making. The E-PRTR gathers and compiles information about the state of pollutant releases and transfers of large industrial sites across Europe and, as such, it is a very useful tool for the public to follow the environmental impact of these sites over time.
The natural scope of the E-PRTR Regulation should therefore remain the ‘facility’ level and the quality, clarity and comparability of the data should prevail over the quantity of the data.
With this in mind, our associations share the following key messages on the Targeted Stakeholder Survey (TSS) on the E-PRTR Regulation revision:
The success of this legislation relies on numerous related delegated and implementing acts to be released, the revision of already existing ones and their mutual coherence. The European steel industry is ready to assist the European Commission in this endeavor.
EUROFER broadly welcomes the Commission proposal for a revised Construction Products Regulation (CPR) and has identified several improvements that should be addressed during the co-decision procedure
