Nice news from Austria – Very important and helpful for Serbian companies interested in EMAS!

As we already announced few months ago, The Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management as EMAS licensing body published “Guideline for the registration of organisations from third countries“.

In short, this mean that now there is more precisely defined the practical steps for third countries EMAS registration through Austrian EU EMAS register.

Citation: “As far as the request of the competent authority before the first registration according to Article 13 c) EMAS Regulation is concerned the Federal Environment Agency has to check whether a respective cooperation with the local authorities – for example Ministries of Environment- is possible, so that they can act as information interface to the local implementing authorities of the third country and inform, in the case of a relevant violation of the applicable provisions of environmental law, the competent authority in our country about this matter.”

Since there is already very nice cooperation of UBA (Austrian Environmental Agency and Serbian Ministry of Agriculture and environmental protection, it is expected that this Guideline will lead to further actions towards EMAS in Serbia since there is already very nice cooperation of UBA (Austrian Environmental Agency and Serbian Ministry of Agriculture and environmental protection.

We use this opportunity to thanks Austrian colleagues for all help and support already given and all the efforts taken. Hopefully, we will finally have the first Serbian organizations EMAS registered! We encourage all Serbian companies interested in EMAS registration (as well as licenced Austrian environmental verifiers) to use this opportunity and make further steps towards EMAS registration!
