Executive Summary

The main objectives and goals of the project will be to produce a:

  1. Compilation of assessed risk criteria, their value and practicability in the inspection planning process
  2. Flexible and user friendly programme for the risk assessment within the planning of environmental inspections as an advanced interactive IT tool from the internet available from the IMPEL homepage
  3. Final report and risk assessment guidance book

Project description

The aim of the new project is to develop a flexible and user friendly programme for the risk assessment within the planning of environmental inspections as an application from the internet. The risk assessment tool will be part of the “planning cycle” described in the “Step by step guidance book for planning of environmental inspection” developed by the “Doing The Right Things” project (DTRT). It will take into account the needs of the IMPEL member countries as well as the requirements of European environmental law like the upcoming Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) and it will be linked to the Recommendation on Minimum Criteria for Environmental Inspections (RMCEI). It will be based on results of an evaluation of risk assessment tools currently used in IMPEL member countries. There will also be an evaluation of risk criteria used until now and of the criteria listed in the IED proposal. This will be done in the light of the IMPEL assessment of the IPPC recast proposal and the IMPEL input for the further development of the RMCEI with the aim to make them more practicable.
