EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This Note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Pollution Prevention and Control (Industrial Emissions) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2013 (“the principal Regulations”).

These Regulations implement Commission Directive 2014/99/EU (O.J. No. L 304, 23.10.2014, p. 89), which amends Directive 2009/126/EC (O.J. No. L 285, 31.10.2009, p. 36) as regards the test methods to certify petrol vapour recovery systems for use in service stations and the test methods to verify the operation of such systems.

Regulation 4 amends the principal Regulations to substitute the definition of “PVR II” in paragraph 2 of Part 2 of Schedule 12 so that the updated definition refers to that Directive as amended by Commission Directive 2014/99/EU.

An Impact Assessment has been prepared and copies can be obtained from the Air and Environmental Quality Unit, Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, Goodwood House, 44-58 May Street, Town Parks, Belfast, BT1 4NN. A copy has been placed in the Assembly library.
