They impose a duty on the NRA to include conditions on discharge consents which will ensure compliance with the obligations of the directives, to establish monitoring procedures, to sample controlled waters, and to furnish the DoE with information on an annual basis. The NRA was required under the Direction to submit a range of information in its annual returns to the DoE. The information includes an inventory of discharges of dangerous substances and relevant consent details, the results of monitoring of the receiving waters and sediments, and the results of environmental monitoring. Reasons for non-compliance with relevant standards must also be reported together with proposed remedial measures.
