Guidelines for the rulebook for the limit values and the permisable emission levels and types of pollutants in flue gases and vapors from stationary sources was adopted
The aim of this guideline is to assist the owners of the installations and the consultant-analysts in performing emission monitoring and measurement, and in order to abide the requirements set down in the Rulebook on the methods, means and methodology for measurement of emissions from stationary sources (Official Gazette of RM, No.11/2012) which entered into force on 1st September 2012. This Guideline was prepared in the frame of Twining project “Strengthening the central and local level capacities for environmental management in the area of air quality” (01.09.2010-31.10.2012 ). The guideline witnin ten chapters, describes the general aspects of measurement of emissions from stationary sources and they are further précised with the standards specified in it. The QA/QC procedures of measurement of emissions from stationary sources have been described.

Guidelines for the rulebook for the limit values and the permisable emission levels and types of pollutants in flue gases and vapors from stationary sources was adopted

This Guideline was prepared for the adequate implementation of the Rulebook for the limit values and the permissible emission levels and types of pollutants in flue gases and vapors from stationary sources which enter into force on 01.01.2013. It was prepared in the frame of Twining project “Strengthening the central and local level capacities for environmental management in the area of air quality” (01.09.2010-31.10.2012 ) and it give short overview of the rulebook content. This Guideline, which is a practical guide or user manual, is referring to the proper application of the ELV by installation of different capacities. The Guideline is directed preliminarily at industrial operators, but also to inspectors dealing with control of emissions from stationary sources, and authorities giving A and B permits to operators.
