Doc. 108/20Environmental Legislation Applicable to Industrial Gases Operations Within the EU

The EIGA Environmental Legislation Guide covers environmental legislation originating from the European Union. Whilst there is a wide variety of environmental legislation in each member state, the main driving forces come from the European Union with over 400 legislative instruments put in place since 2001. This publication provides guidance on how European legislation concerns the main environmental aspects relevant to the Industrial Gases Industry. In all cases the relevant national legislation should be consulted for specific implementation in each country or region.

The publication has been revised to update information and references in the guide. The publication is intended for use by all those involved in the management of the environmental aspects of industrial and medical gas operations.
