Revision of the National Emission Ceilings Directive

The revision of the National Emission Ceilings Directive 2001/81/EC (NECD) is part of the implementation of the Thematic Strategy on Air Pollution. The proposal to amend the NECD is still under preparation and should set emission ceilings to be respected by 2020 for the four already regulated substances and for the primary emissions of PM2.5 as well. The revision builds upon the evaluation and review of the National Programmes 2002 and 2006, the work performed under the Clean Air for Europe Programme, the Thematic Strategy on Air Pollution, and new scientific and technical work. The revision also takes into account (proposals for) the Community legislation for specific source categories, like Euro 5/6, EURO VI, the revision of the IPPC-directive and the decision of the European Council of March 2007 to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions by 20% and to have 20% renewables by 2020.

The following contracts have provide technical input to the revision of the NECD. For each project the most recent report is given, otherwise the technical annex describing the work to be undertaken is attached.
