When do you need to make an environmental report?

Whether you must make an annual environmental report (integral PRTR report) depends on your activities and the substances released in the process (emissions).

If you are obliged to make an environmental report, you have to submit your PRTR report for the preceding year to the provincial authorities each year no later than 31 March (in Dutch).

Do you run an intensive poultry or pig farm? You have to submit your emissions data via the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO, in Dutch)
