  2. In accordance with paragraph 1 of Article 160 of the Code, the Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (hereinafter referred to as the PRTR) is a structured database on the state of emissions and environmental pollution that is publicly available and is maintained by the authorized body in the field of environmental protection (hereinafter the authorized body) in order to ensure transparency.
  3. The PRTR contains information on maximum allowable concentrations of pollutants, their effects on health and environment, as well as other scientifically based information on pollutant releases and transfers and information on users of natural resources.
  4. In accordance with paragraph 3 of Article 160 of the Code, information on users of natural resources contains:

The pollutant release and transfer register contains information on maximum allowable concentrations of pollutants, their impact on health and the environment, as well as other scientifically based information on pollutant releases and transfers and information on users of natural resources.

Information about nature users should contain:

1) the name, legal address, type of activity of the natural resource user;

2) information on the volume of actual emissions into the environment.

  1. A production site is understood as a protected and fenced territory for the placement of industrial, administrative, sanitary and auxiliary buildings and facilities of an enterprise in which the nature user carries out activities related to emissions into the environment.

        The terms and definitions used in these Rules are applied in accordance with the legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan in the field of environmental protection

 

Chapter 2. The procedure for maintaining the State Pollutants release and transfer register

 

  1. Nature users established in Annex 1 (hereinafter referred to as Nature Users), each year before April 1, should submit to the subordinate organization of an authorized body for environmental protection (hereinafter – the Subordinate organization) on the location of each production site, the following information for the previous year:

1) general information about the Nature User in the form, in accordance with Annex 2 to this Rules;

2) information:      

on the volume of actual emissions of pollutants into the atmospheric air in form according to Annex 3 to this Rules;

        on the volume of actual emissions of pollutants into water bodies in form according to Annex 4 to these Rules;

        on production and consumption wastes generated at the production site in the form according to Annes 5 to these Rules;

Nature Users whose activities include the conduct of a waste disposal operation provide information, in form according to Annex 6 to this Rules;

       Nature Users whose activities include the operation of waste recovery provide information in the form according to Annex 7 to these Rules;     

on the placement of sulfur generated at the production site in the form according to Annex 6 to this Rules.   

  1. Information is submitted on paper and (or) in electronic format by filling in the on-screen form of the information system and signing it with an electronic digital signature of the official of Nature User responsible for providing information, again if it is changed.
  2. The subordinate organization within 10 calendar days checks the completeness of the information provided, in case of non-compliance, returns it to the Nature User for revision, indicating the reasons.
  3. 9. Nature Users within 5 calendar days modify the information provided or provide an explanatory note in an arbitrary form with confirmation of the information provided.
  4. 10. Nature Users who own several production sites located on the territory of one region (cities of republican significance, the capital) provide information on emissions to the environment for each production site separately.
  5. 12. The subordinate organization places information on the PRTR in open access, in accordance with paragraph 2 of Article 163 of the Code.
