4. If imminent threat of damage causes or may cause threats or adverse effects on human health, the Service shall invite specialists of the institutions subordinate to the Ministry of Health to participate in the evaluation and prevention of any imminent threat of damage.

5. If imminent threat of damage has been caused by objects, to which the laws and regulations regarding the procedures for risk assessment of industrial accidents and risk reduction measures apply, or if imminent threat of damage conforms to the danger specified in civil protection plans, organisation and performance of preventive measures shall take place in accordance with the referred-to laws and regulations and documents.

III. Elimination of Environmental Damage and Performance of Emergency Measures

6. If environmental damage has been caused, the Service shall, without delay, ensure the inspection of the site where environmental damage was caused in order to provide preliminary evaluation of the environmental damage and to determine emergency measures. During the inspection the Service shall survey the site where the environmental damage was caused and evaluate the scale and type thereof, the natural resources subjected to the damage and human health, the potential prevalence of the damage and the opportunities for elimination thereof.

7. If environmental damage causes or may cause threats or adverse effects on human health, the Service shall invite specialists of the institutions subordinate to the Ministry of Health in order to evaluate the environmental damage, to determine, organise or evaluate emergency measures and rehabilitation measures.

8. After the inspection the Service shall, without delay, draw up an inspection report. The date, by which the operator whose professional activities have caused environmental damage should submit a plan of emergency measures to the Service for co-ordination, shall also be indicated in the inspection report. If emergency measures should be performed without delay and the operator has not performed them, the Service shall indicate the measures to be performed by the operator in the inspection report.

9. If during an inspection the Service detects than an operator has already performed all the necessary emergency measures, the measures performed shall be indicated in the inspection report.

10. The operator shall submit a plan of emergency measures to the Service within the time period specified in the inspection report, except the cases referred to in Paragraphs 8 and 9 of this Regulation. The Service shall, within 30 days, evaluate the plan of emergency measures and take a decision on the performance of emergency measures. The deadline by which the operator should perform the emergency measures shall be indicated in the decision. If necessary, the decision shall include instructions to the operator regarding the measures to be performed.

11. After the performance of emergency measures the operator shall, without delay, inform the Service thereof in writing. The Service shall organise the evaluation of such measures and assess the environmental damage.

12. As regards the environmental damage the Service shall assess:

12.1. the damage to specially protected nature territories, micro-reserves, the damage to specially protected species or natural habitats;

12.2. the damage to water (surface water or groundwater):

12.2.1. the damage to fish resources in accordance with the fisheries expert-examination;

12.2.2. the damage to the ecological or chemical quality of a surface water body, the potential or chemical quality of a heavily modified or artificial water body, the chemical quality or quantitative status of a groundwater body. The damage shall be evaluated by comparing the present condition with the baseline condition of a water body, performing the necessary analyses and evaluating the results of monitoring, as well as observing the environmental quality standards specified in laws and regulations;

12.3. the damage to soil or subterranean depths. The damage shall be evaluated by comparing the polluted soil or subterranean depths with the baseline condition, performing the necessary analyses and evaluating the results of monitoring, as well as observing the environmental quality standards specified in laws and regulations.

[2 March 2010]

13. If several types of polluting substances are detected in a site where environmental damage has been caused, differing in the origin, composition or age, the environmental damage of each polluting substance type shall be evaluated individually.

14. If an opinion of different institutions, experts or specialists is necessary for the evaluation of environmental damage and for taking of a decision on rehabilitation measures, the Service shall establish a commission by an order. The composition of the commission shall include representatives of the Service and other institutions subordinate to the Ministry of Environment and, if necessary, taking into account the damage to the environment, representatives of the territorial local government, in the territory of which environmental damage has been caused, or representatives of other institutions. If environmental damage has been caused forest lands, the composition of the commission shall include a representative of the State Forest Service.

15. If the preliminary evaluation does not provide sufficient information for evaluation of environmental damage, the Service shall repeat inspection. During the repeated inspection the Service may involve the representatives of the commission, as well as other State or local government institutions or private individuals who have a contract with the Service, and the opinions thereof and the results of analyses shall be appended to the inspection report.

16. After the repeated inspection the Service shall draw up an inspection report. The date, by which the operator whose professional activities have caused environmental damage should submit a plan of rehabilitation measures to the Service, shall also be indicated in the inspection report.

17. In order to perform complete evaluation of environmental damage and to take a decision on rehabilitation measures, the Service is entitled to involve the operator and to organise additional measures for the evaluation of environmental damage. The Service shall clarify, evaluate and, if possible, take into account the considerations of the owner in whose immovable property the performance of rehabilitation measures is intended.

IV. Objectives and Methods of Rehabilitation and the Selection of Rehabilitation Measures

18. The objectives of rehabilitation shall be as follows:

18.1. in relation to damage to water, specially protected species or specially protected natural habitats - to restore the baseline condition, using primary, complementary and compensatory rehabilitation, as well as to eliminate substantial threat of adverse effects on human health. Restoration, including natural recovery, in relation to damage to water, specially protected species or specially protected natural habitats shall mean the restoration of the damaged natural resources or impaired services to baseline condition, but in relation to soil or subterranean depths - the elimination of any substantial risk of adverse effects on human health;

18.2. in relation to damage to soil or subterranean depths - to restore the baseline condition or at least to ensure the collection, control, limitation or reduction of the pollution so that it does not cause substantial threat or adverse effects on human health or the environment, taking into account the objective of the use of the land.

19. Primary rehabilitation is a set of measures, the objective of which is to return the damaged natural resources or impaired functions related to natural resources to, or towards, baseline condition.

20. Complementary rehabilitation is a set of measures performed in relation to natural resources or functions related to natural resources in order to compensate for the fact that primary rehabilitation did not result in fully restoring the damaged natural resources or functions related to natural resources. The objective of complementary rehabilitation is to provide a similar level of natural resources or functions related to natural resources as would have been provided if the damaged site had been returned to its baseline condition.

21. If it is not possible to ensure restoration in the damaged territory with complementary rehabilitation, the Service shall take a decision to perform restoration in the alternative territory. It shall be possible if the land of the alternative territory belongs to the operator or the operator has reached an agreement with the owner of the land. Where possible and appropriate the alternative site shall be geographically linked to the damaged territory, taking into account the affected natural resources, affected specially protected species or specially protected natural habitats.

22. Compensatory rehabilitation is any action taken to compensate for interim losses of natural resources or functions related to natural resources that occur from the date of damage occurring until primary rehabilitation has achieved its full effect. Such compensation shall be formed by complementary improvements to specially protected species and natural habitats or waters in the damaged territory or the alternative territory, and it may not be substituted with financial compensation. Interim losses occur if the damaged natural resources or functions related to natural resources are not able to perform their ecological functions or provide services to other natural resources or to the public until the primary or complementary rehabilitation has taken effect.

23. If primary rehabilitation does not ensure restoration of the environment to the baseline condition, complementary rehabilitation shall be performed.

24. The following conditions shall be observed in the selection of rehabilitation methods for water, specially protected species or specially protected natural habitats:

24.1. in determining the primary rehabilitation measures, the Service shall consider options to restore the natural resources and the functions related to natural resources towards baseline condition on an accelerated time frame, or through natural recovery;

24.2. in determining complementary and compensatory rehabilitation measures and their scale, all natural resources requiring rehabilitation shall be assessed initially. At first measures which provide for the restoration of the same natural resources or the type, quality and quantity of the functions related to natural resources shall be examined. If it is not possible, alternative natural resources or functions related to natural resources shall be ensured;

24.3. if it is not possible to use the approach of individual natural resources or functions related to natural resources referred to in Sub-paragraph 24.2 of this Regulation and it is not possible to eliminate the damage or only partial elimination thereof is possible, the Service shall:

24.3.1. calculate the losses to specially protected species or natural habitats in accordance with Chapter VI of this Regulation;

24.3.2. calculate the damage to water as losses in relation to fish resources in accordance with Paragraph 28 of this Regulation and the damage in relation the unit of the pollution remaining in waters, which has been evaluated by calculating or performing analyses in accordance with Annex 1, Table 1 of this Regulation.

25. Complementary and compensatory rehabilitation measures shall be planned so that they would ensure complementary natural resources or functions related to natural resources, taking into account the advantages of rehabilitation measures and the time period necessary for the performance thereof.

26. The rehabilitation methods for water, specially protected species or specially protected natural habitats shall be evaluated, applying the best available methods on the basis of the following criteria:

26.1. the effect on human health and public safety;

26.2. the cost of implementing;

26.3. the likelihood of success;

26.4. the extent to which the method will prevent future damage, and avoid collateral damage as a result of implementing the method;

26.5. the extent to which the method benefits to each component of the natural resource or function related to natural resources;

26.6. the extent to which each method takes account of social, economic and cultural concerns and other relevant factors specific to the locality;

26.7. the length of time it will take for the restoration of the environmental damage to be effective;

26.8. the extent to which the restoration of site of the environmental damage will be achieved;

26.9. the geographical linkage to the damaged site.

27. When evaluating rehabilitation methods, the Service may chose primary rehabilitation measures that do not fully restore the damaged water or protected species or natural habitat to the baseline condition or that restore it more slowly. The Service may take such decision only if the natural resources or functions related to natural resources foregone at the primary site as a result of the decision are compensated for by increasing complementary or compensatory actions to provide a similar level of natural resources or functions related to natural resources as were foregone. The complementary rehabilitation measures shall be determined in accordance with the requirements referred to in Sub-paragraph 24.2 of this Regulation.

28. Rehabilitation measures in relation to the damage to fish resources shall be determined in accordance with a statement of fisheries expert-examination.

29. Rehabilitation measures in relation to the damage to soil or subterranean depths shall be determined:

29.1. using risk assessment procedures, taking into account the functions and characteristic of the soil or subterranean depths, the type and concentration of chemical substances, chemical products (preparations) organisms or micro-organisms, their risk and the possibility of their dispersion;

29.2. taking into account the purpose of the use of the land at the time when damage occurred. If the purpose of the use of the land has changed, such measures shall be determined, which should be performed in order to eliminate any adverse effect on human health;

29.3. evaluating the probability of natural recovery without direct human interference;

29.4. taking into account the environmental quality standards specified in the laws and regulations regarding the quality of soil and the ground;

29.5. if elimination of the damage is not possible or only partial elimination thereof is possible, calculating the damage for a unit of the remaining pollution, which has been evaluated by calculating or performing analyses, in accordance with Annex 1, Table 2 of this Regulation.

V. Determination and Performance of Rehabilitation Measures

30. The operator shall, in accordance with the deadline specified in the inspection report, develop a plan of rehabilitation measures, taking into account the requirements referred to in Chapter IV of this Regulation, and submit it to the Service for evaluation and approval. If the performance of rehabilitation measures is performed by the Service, the development of the plan of rehabilitation measures shall be organised by the Service.

31. If the operator has not been detected or the environmental damage has been caused by a person not deemed as an operator, an act or omission committed intentionally or through negligence, violating the requirements of the laws and regulations regarding the environment, rehabilitation measures shall be organised by the Service according to the financing granted.

32. If the operator needs the information at the disposal of the Service regarding the evaluation of the environmental damage for the development of a plan of rehabilitation measures, the Service shall provide the operator with the information at the disposal thereof.

33. The Service shall, in co-operation with a commission (if such has been established) and within the time periods specified in the Administrative Procedure Law, evaluate the plan of rehabilitation measures developed by the operator, taking into account the environmental damage and the requirements referred to in Chapter IV of this Regulation, and take a decision to perform rehabilitation measures. The decision shall include the following:

33.1. the rehabilitation measures to be performed in relation to damage to specially protected nature territories, damage to individuals of specially protected species or natural habitats, water and soil or subterranean depths. If it is not possible to eliminate the environmental damage or only partial elimination of the consequences of the damage is possible, such calculated sum, which should be paid by the operator into the State basic budget, and the deadline, by which the calculated sum should be paid into the State budget, shall be indicated;

33.2. the time of commencement of rehabilitation measures, the procedures for the performance of such measures and the deadline by which the referred to measures should be completed;

33.3. the deadline, by which the operator should submit information regarding the progress of rehabilitation measures; and

33.4. other conditions or instructions to the operator regarding rehabilitation measures.

34. Without regard to the conditions referred to in Paragraph 27 of this Regulation and in accordance with Section 28, Paragraph seven of the Environmental Protection Law, the Service may take a decision that further rehabilitation measures need not be performed if:

34.1. the performed emergency and rehabilitation measures ensure that substantial threat of adverse affects on human health, water or protected species and natural habitats does not exist anymore;

34.2. the anticipated costs of the measures to be performed in order to achieve the baseline condition or similar level of the environmental quality are not commensurate with the ecological benefits achieved.

35. If the operator whose professional activities have caused environmental damage detects during rehabilitation measures that it is not possible to eliminate the environmental damage by the rehabilitation measures indicated in the decision of the Service, the operator shall submit a submission to the Service, justifying therein the necessity to make amendments to the decision taken by the Service. The Service shall evaluate the information referred to in the submission of the operator in accordance with the procedures laid down in the Administrative Procedure Law.

36. After the performance of rehabilitation measures the operator shall inform the Service in writing regarding the measures performed, appending information to the submission certifying that the rehabilitation measures have been performed in accordance with the decision of the Service, including test reports on analyses conducted by accredited laboratories.

37. In order to determine whether the operator has eliminated the environmental damage according to the decision taken by the Service, the Service shall perform an inspection. During the inspection the Service shall involve relevant specialists if the Service does not have the necessary specialists at the disposal thereof or the Service needs it for taking of the decision. The facts detected shall be indicated in the inspection report, as well as the environmental monitoring to be performed for the operator and the deadline for the submission of monitoring data to the Service shall be determined in order to ascertain whether the rehabilitation measures performed have been sufficiently efficient and deterioration of the environmental condition does not take place.

VI. Remediation of Losses in Relation to Specially Protected Species or Natural Habitats

38. If, in applying the rehabilitation methods referred to in Chapter IV of this Regulation, it is not possible to restore the specially protected species or natural habitats to the baseline condition, the Service shall, in accordance with this Chapter, calculate the losses to the specially protected species or natural habitats to be transferred to the State basic budget.

39. The damage to specially protected nature territories shall be evaluated, taking into account the damage to the individuals of specially protected species or natural habitats. If the individuals of specially protected species referred to in Annexes 2, 3 and 4 to this Regulation have been destroyed or damaged in a nature reserve, nature restricted area, nature reserve area of the national park or biosphere reserve, as well as in the territory of a micro-reserve or forest area of special protection, the losses shall be reimbursed in triple amount.

40. In order to cover damage to the individuals of specially protected species (for example, killing and injuring of individuals of animal species and destruction of their habitat, cutting, picking, digging out, collecting, damaging and gathering of individuals of plant species and destruction of their habitat), the amount of remediation thereof shall be determined according to the division of specially protected species in groups depending on the level of danger, occurrence and significance thereof:

40.1. for destruction or damaging of individuals of the first group of specially protected species (Annex 2) the damage shall be reimbursed in the amount of 40 minimal monthly wages for each individual;

40.2. for destruction or damaging of individuals of the second group of specially protected species (Annex 3) the damage shall be reimbursed in the amount of 10 minimal monthly wages for each individual;

40.3. for destruction or damaging of individuals of the third group of specially protected species (Annex 4) the damage shall be reimbursed in the amount of five minimal monthly wages for each individual.

41. For destruction or damaging of such individuals of specially protected species, which are not referred to in Annex 2, 3 or 4 to this Regulation, the damage shall be reimbursed in the amount of three minimal monthly wages for each individual if the individual of the specially protected species has been destroyed or damaged in the territory of a micro-reserve established for the protection thereof.

42. Damage to a specially protected natural habitat (destruction or damaging, for example, pollution, ploughing up, building, land transformation, change in the water mode, extraction of mineral resources) shall be reimbursed in the amount of five minimal monthly wages for each 10 m2 of the destroyed or damaged natural habitat. The damage to specially protected natural habitats of forests and shrubbery shall not be calculated if the losses to the forest have been calculated in accordance with the laws and regulations regarding the procedures for determination of losses to the forest.

43. The amount to be reimbursed for the destruction or damaging of the lay or hatch of specially protected birds (damaging of eggs, taking of eggs or baby-birds out from a nest) shall be increased twofold for each individual according to the group in which the relevant species has been included.

VII. Calculation of the Costs of Preventive, Emergency and Rehabilitation Measures

44. The requirements of this Chapter shall apply to such costs of preventive, emergency and rehabilitation measures, which occur for an institution or a local government upon organisation or performance of emergency or rehabilitation measures, including by involving other institutions, local governments or private individuals in the performance of these measures.

[2 March 2010]

45. The costs of preventive, emergency and rehabilitation measures shall be formed by the costs of such work, which is necessary for the reduction and prevention of the threat of environmental damage, the performance of emergency and rehabilitation measures, the elimination of the losses causes by the environmental damage.

46. The following shall be included in calculation of the costs of preventive, emergency and rehabilitation measures:

46.1. the actual expenditure of paid services of such institution or local government, which has organised or performed preventive, emergency and rehabilitation measures;
