Call for Views: Draft UK Report on the Protocol on Pollutant Release and Transfer Registers

Closed 6 Jan 2014

Opened 6 Dec 2013

Overview

Decision I/5 on reporting requirements of the Kiev Protocol on Pollutant Releases and Transfer Registers (PRTRs) requires that Parties to the Protocol prepare a national implementation report. The Decision further requires that the report be prepared in consultation with the public. The draft  report which is attached to this consultation has been prepared by Defra in consultation with the devolved administrations. We seek views on the content of the draft report including the public's experience of how the Protocol has been implemented.

Why We Are Consulting

Access to infomation and public participation in environmental decision making  are key pillars of the Kiev Protocol. We want to hear from the public about how effective the UK implementation of the Protocol is. The draft report we have prepared follows the format as set out in Decision I/5 on reporting requirements. We would like to hear from the public about all aspects of the report . We are particularly interested to hear views about the UK PRTR site at http://prtr.defra.gov.uk/index .

What Happens Next

We make every effort in taking your views into account before finalising the report which needs to be deposited with the secretariat of the Protocol at the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).
