The Base Soil Report is a report that contains the information necessary to determine the state of the soil and groundwater, in order to make the quantitative comparison with the state after the definitive cessation of activities, provided for in article 23 of Royal Legislative Decree 1/2016, of 16 December.
This basic report on the quality of the soil and subsoil is necessary for applying for Integrated Environmental Authorisation for companies whose activities involve the use, production or emission of relevant hazardous substances, taking into account the possibility of soil contamination and the contamination of the groundwaters at the site of the installation.
What kind of companies have to make the base report?
The companies that must carry out the Basic Soil Report are those that carry out the activities included in Order PRA/1080/2017, of November 2, which modifies Annex I of Royal Decree 9/2005, of January 14, establishing the list of potentially soil-polluting activities and the criteria and standards for the declaration of contaminated soils.
If you do not know or are not clear about whether your company's activity implies that you must carry out the soil base report, please contact us.
What is the content of the report or IBS?
The soil base report contains the following:
1. Information on current use and, if available, previous uses of the site.
2. If available, the risk analyses and existing reports regulated in the contaminated soil legislation for measures carried out on soil and groundwater reflecting the status at the time of writing of the report or, alternatively, new measures carried out on soil and groundwater related to the possibility of soil and groundwater contamination by those hazardous substances to be used, produced or emitted by the facility concerned.
