MED-IPPC-NET is a 30-month project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the MED Programme for interregional cooperation.

Its main goal is to identify key aspects in the implementation of the IPPC Directive concerning Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (96/61/EC) within the Mediterranean area, in order to establish a set of common criteria that should be taken into account by all regions wishing to enhance its implementation. These common criteria will be the inputs for the development of a common methodology (guidelines) for the implementation of the IPPC Directive, which will be validated in the industrial sector, supporting thus the harmonisation of permit issuing across the Mediterranean.
