Seeking to both pass knowledge and experience from EU Member States and the EU in general, the speakers chosen brought forward their countries’ approach to the implementation of Industrial Emissions Directive (IED), namely Austria, Croatia and Spain. In addition, there were also speakers from EU Bodies and Energy Committee who provided latest developments in the implementation of IED, inspection and permitting processes together with an overview on requirements for Transitional National Plans.

The workshop’s main outputs were:
- Enhanced understanding of the topic, policy and legislation, challenges and current practices related to IED,
