EPER BACKGROUND

UN Conf. (1992)               UNECE (1998)
Rio de Janeiro                Aarhus Convention

                    USA - TRI (1986)

OECD / PRTR                   IPPC / EPER
Manual (1996)                 Decision (2000)


    European Commission
    DG Environment
    IPPC Emission Inventory
   Commission Decision on EPER adopted
    and published in July 2000 (2000/479/EC)
   Main regulated issues in EPER are:
    - objectives and use of the IPPC / EPER
    - selected pollutants and threshold values
    - facility as reporting unit / format
    - source categories and NOSE codes
    - data management and quality aspects
    - timetable and implementation
    - reviews and future developments

        European Commission
        DG Environment
    DECISION on EPER
   Use by public, industry and government
   50 Pollutants to be reported (air and water)
   Reporting unit is the individual facility
   Comparability by using NOSE-P codes
   Methodology in three classes (M, C, E)
   First reports by Member States in June 2003
    with reported data for 2001 (or 2000 / 2002)
   EPER implementation will start in 2000 with
    Guidance Document and national workshops
        European Commission
        DG Environment
    GOAL of the EPER
   To provide comparable, publicly accessible
    information on emissions of (50) pollutants
    from (20 000) individual facilities
   To inventory emission data on pollutants as
    required by the IPPC Directive (1996)
   To meet the needs for public right-to-know of
    releases from industry to the environment as
    agreed in the Aarhus Convention (1998)

    TIMETABLE
   First reports by Member States in June 2003
   First emission data for 2001 (or 2000 / 2002)
   Second reports in June 2006 on emission
    data for the year 2004
   After review of the second reporting:
        Decision on subsequent annual reporting
    by Member States in December of the year T
    on releases in the year T-1
   Intention to start annual reporting in T=2008
        European Commission
        DG Environment
    IMPLEMENTATION
   Anticipation by Member States in 2000 - 2002
   Legal obligation for national reporting in 2001
   Preparation by national workshops in 2000/1
   Guidance Document by the Commission to
    be published in December 2000:
       promote the usefulness of the register
       explain the reporting requirements in detail
       provide sector-specific sub-lists of pollutants
   Providing information to all stakeholders

      PART 1: general explanation
     Why to report and how to use the register
     Who should report about what and how
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


      PART 2 and 3: specific requirements
     Sector-specific sub-lists of pollutants
     Emissions from an individual facility on a site
     Emission determination methodology

 GUIDANCE DOC. (1)

     IDENTIFICATION of FACILITY
1.Identify each facility with Annex I activities
2.Select for the facility the NACE code, source
   categories and corresponding NOSE-P codes
3. Select the main activity and its NOSE-P code
4. Report the facility if at least the emission of
   one pollutant exceeds the threshold value


      European Commission
      DG Environment
  GUIDANCE DOC. (2)
      EMISSION DETERMINATION
1.Select all pollutants released from the Annex I
   activities (by use of sector-specific sub-lists)
2.The emissions include all facility releases, but
   non-Annex I releases can be excluded
3. Determine the emission data for all pollutants
   exceeding the threshold values as releases to
   air, direct and/or indirect releases to water
4. Report each of the emission data (in kg/year)
   with its determination method (M, C, E)

       DG Environment
 GUIDANCE DOC. (3)

        INDIVIDUAL REPORTING
1.Report for each facility individually according
   to the (electronic) format of Annex A2
2. Specify the main Annex I activity and its
   corresponding NOSE-P code
3. Report the emission data for the facility as
   totals for all pollutants exceeding the
   threshold values of Annex A1

      DG Environment
  GUIDANCE DOC. (4)
      AGGREGATED REPORTING
1.Specify the source categories according to
   Annex A3 and select the NOSE-P codes
2.Sum all individually reported emission data
   for identical main Annex I activities and also
   for identical main NOSE-P codes
3. Report the national emission totals for all
   pollutants by source category as aggregated
   by Annex A3 category and NOSE-P code

    REVIEW after each reporting cycle
   Aiming at a future scope as integrated PRTR
   Adjusting list of pollutants / threshold values
   Including other sources than IPPC (SMEs)
   Annual reporting frequency after 2007
   Optimising tools for electronic data transfer
   Updating the Guidance Document

    AARHUS Convention

    Follow-up of the second meeting of the
    Signatories in Dubrovnik (2000):
   Working Group established to develop a
    legally binding instrument on PRTRs
   EPER could be taken as a starting point
   Duplication of efforts should be avoided

        European Commission
        DG Environment
    EPER REPORTING
   Identify facility with IPPC Annex I activity
   Collect for each facility the emission data for
    all pollutants exceeding threshold values
   Include all activities of the facility and specify
    the source categories and their NOSE codes
   Report individual emission data and their
    determination methodology (M, C, E)
   Report aggregated national emission data for
    all source categories and NOSE codes
        European Commission

    EMISSION DATA
   Direct releases to air :
    total emission of a facility including all
    activities (Annex I and usually non-Annex I)
   Direct releases to water :
