The Principle of Precaution is a successful strategy to minimize or to eliminate harmful or hazardous substances as a result of industrial production. In order to prevent or to eliminate pollution from industrial production, the application of the use of Best Environmental Practice (BEP) for all sources and Available Technology (BAT) for point sources shall be promoted. To control whether the strategy is sufficient for the environment, Environmental Quality Objectives (EQO) should be defined. If the application of BEP and BAT does not lead to environmental acceptable results, e.g., if the EQO are exceeded, additional measures shall be applied. To support this strategy, the introduction of an Eco-Management scheme is highly recommended.
