A growing number of governments seek to adopt an approach based on Best Available Techniques (BAT) as part of the regulatory framework to prevent and control industrial emissions. There is value in supporting their efforts with guidance on how to identify and establish BAT, BAT-associated emission levels (BAT-AELs) and other environmental performance levels (BAT-AEPLs), as well as BAT-based permit conditions, including emission limit values. The OECD was tasked in 2018 by the 58th Joint Meeting of the Chemicals Committee and the Working Party on Chemicals, Pesticides and Biotechnology to develop such guidance, in order to provide support to countries that wish to set up, or strengthen, their BAT-based policies. More information on how the OECD works on BAT is provided in Box 2.
