10.04.2016 | 1.4.3. Study visit to The Netherlands

In the period 4th – 8th of April of 2016 a delegation of the Republic of Macedonia implemented the third and last study visit within this Project in The Netherlands and visited several companies of different sectors as examples of good practice in the field of environmental inspection and enforcement of environmental regulations by the companies.

The group was composed of 11 representatives of the State Environmental Inspectorate, Ministry of Environment and Physical Planning and several municipalities from the Republic of Macedonia that were welcomed by the Dutch Junior Partner Project Leader of this Twinning, Mr. Rob Kramers, and the team of environmental inspectors and experts from InfoMil, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment and Regional Environmental Agencies, with the purpose of exchanging good practices and experience in environmental enforcement, with a focus in areas of IPPC/IED, organisation of public enforcement authorities and transfrontiershipments of waste between Dutch and Macedonian partners.

Institutional visits included  the regional Environmental Protection Agencies of the North Sea Channel Area and Central and West Brabant and the customs in the harbour of Rotterdam. Further, insight was given on how the Academy of the Dutch Knowledge Centre of Environment is setup and what the tasks are of the Dutch Inspection Council.

The group was divided into 2 subgroups, which implemented in 2 of the days a series of inspections together with Dutch inspectors (1 inspection/subgroup/day) to a waste incineration plant (AfvalEnergieBedrijf Amsterdam), two metal processing installations (MX3D  and Balkonhekken onderneming) a slaughterhouse (Van Vion) and an asphalt production plant (Van Rasenberg).

In addition the group had the opportunity to visit a brewery installation in Delft and devoted a day to the topic of transfrontier shipment of waste in Rotterdam, including a visit to a company working with dry bulk goods and their transhipment (EMO).
