The revised guidance is due to be published on 4 October 2010 and from that date will become the statutory guidance on the Best Available Techniques for the drycleaning industry.

The revision is part of a broader six-year review to update Pollution Prevention and Control (PPC) process guidance (PG) notes.

The Secretary of State’s Guidance for Dry Cleaning, Draft Process Guidance Note 6/46 (10), has been drawn up in consultation with a Technical Working Group of industry and local authority representatives. The timetable for the review and a list of consultees for PG6/46 (10), can be found at the Defra website.
