Amendments were made to change the emission limit value (ELV) for particulate matter which is measured on a periodic (twice yearly) basis to the same value as that of the half hourly ELV for particulate matter which is measured on a continuous basis. This was in line with the Waste Incineration Directive which was in force at the time and remains in line with the current requirements of the Industrial Emissions Directive.
