The Ministry of agriculture, Food and environment has designated the National Association of companies of timber protection, ANEPROMA, as unique and business organization of the protection of the wood sector, for the defence of the interests and drafting proposal, review and attendance at European meetings for the creation of the implementation document to all wood processing companies.

The publication of the Law 5/2013 of 11 June, amending the Act 16/2002, of 1 July, integrated pollution prevention and control and the 22/2011, of 28 July, contaminated waste and soil, introduces the wood conservation industry to its annex, I mean, autoclave plants and bathtubs for the treatment of wood, except for bathtubs used to combat wood tare.

The business-level implications of the entry into force of the 5/2013 should be defined during the coming months in which the document will be built that will expose the capacity-based enterprises that can be applied, measures to be taken into account in the use of protective products, such as organics that contain COVs, constructive measures to ensure the protection of the soil, water and air, the elimination and management of emission gases, management of the waste generated, etc.

The active collaboration of all companies in the sector of autoclaves and treatment baths is of vital importance because the lack of involvement of any company indifferent to the size it possesses may imply the non-defense of its interests and that with it the possible entry into force of the document of the best available techniques that require the company to make an investment of high consideration with regard to the use of the treatment plant and thereby be forced to cease the activity.

From ANEPROMA in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment work has begun prior to face-to-face and vote meetings on the content of the document.

For the above reasons, please contact an additional member if you are affected to contact anEPROMA technical secretariat as a national representative, in order to expose and report first-hand on the legal implications and actions to date, as well as the active way to participate and be fully represented and defended in their interests.
