Reaction BOPEC is studied by ILT

The Living Environment and Transport Inspectorate (Inspectie Leefomgeving en Transport (ILT) is examining BOPEC’s reaction in the week of January 22nd. The last documents have been handed in on Friday, January 19th. The ILT will study all documents thoroughly to come to the judgment whether to impose administrative coercionto (last onder bestuursdwang,LOB) will be enforced.

In the reaction, BOPEC submits a proposal concerning the prioritizing of repairs and the use of the available financial resources. The risks to people and the environment, that are accompanied by this proposal, will be judged by the ILT. The reaction is a response to the intention of the ILT to impose administrative coercionto.

The administrative coercionto of the ILT is about the demands to BOPEC, to empty the tanks and pipes, unless the company can demonstrate that the overdue maintenance can be safely eliminated and that the infringements can be recovered in time.
