Further developing the environmental permit procedure for animal sheds required by the Environmental Protection Act.
STATE OF IMPLEMENTATION
Completed. (All the elements of the measure have been completed both in terms of time and at all planned locations. If a measure consists of an unlimited continuum of measures, a measure can be regarded as having been completed once the first sub-measure has been completed.)
At the beginning of 2019, the amendments to the Environmental Protection Act entered into force to implement a general notification procedure for farm animal facilities. In addition, a government decree (138/2019) governing farm animal facilities was issued under the Environmental Protection Act. The guidelines for environmental protection in animal husbandry were revised in 2021.
