About protection of atmospheric air

(The last edition from 13-07-2015)

Accepted by the State Duma of the Russian Federation on April 2, 1999

Approved by Council of the Russian Federation on April 22, 1999

Atmospheric air is the vital component of the environment, integral part of the habitat of the person, plants and animals.

This Federal Law establishes the legal basis of protection of atmospheric air and is directed to realization of constitutional rights of citizens on the favorable environment and reliable information about its condition.

Chapter I. General provisions

Article 1. Basic concepts

In this Federal Law the following basic concepts are used:

atmospheric air - the vital component of the environment representing the natural mix of gases of the atmosphere which is outside residential, production and other rooms;

the hazardous (contaminating) substance - chemical or biological substance or mix of such substances which contain in atmospheric air and which in certain concentration make harmful effects on health of the person and the environment;

pollution of atmospheric air - receipt in atmospheric air or education in it the hazardous (contaminating) substances in the concentration exceeding the hygienic and ecological standard rates of quality of atmospheric air established by the state;

harmful physical impact on atmospheric air - harmful effects of noise, vibration, ionizing radiation, temperature and other physical factors changing temperature, energy, wave, radiation and other physical properties of atmospheric air on health of the person and the environment;

cross-border pollution of atmospheric air - pollution of atmospheric air as a result of transfer of the hazardous (contaminating) substances which source is located in the territory of foreign state;

adverse weather conditions - the weather conditions promoting accumulating of the hazardous (contaminating) substances in ground layer of atmospheric air;

maximum permissible level of physical impact on atmospheric air - the standard rate of physical impact on atmospheric air which reflects the maximum permissible maximum level of physical impact on atmospheric air in case of which is absent harmful effects on health of the person and the environment;

the maximum permissible standard rate of harmful physical impact on atmospheric air - the standard rate which is established for each source noise vibration, electromagnetic and other physical impacts on atmospheric air and in case of which harmful physical impact from this and from all other sources will not lead to exceeding of maximum permissible levels of physical impacts on atmospheric air;

the technological standard rate of emission - the standard rate of emission of the hazardous (contaminating) substance in the atmospheric air established for engineering procedures of the main productions and the equipment carried to scopes of the best available technologies using technological indicator of emission;

maximum permissible (critical) loading - indicator of impact of one or several hazardous (contaminating) substances on the surrounding environment which exceeding can lead to harmful effects on the environment;

maximum permissible emission - the norm of emission of the hazardous (contaminating) substance in atmospheric air which is determined as amount or mass of chemical or mix of chemicals, microorganisms, other substances, as activity ratio of radioactive materials, admissible for emission in atmospheric air by stationary source and (or) set of stationary sources and in case of which observance fulfillment of requirements in the field of protection of atmospheric air is provided;

temporarily permitted emission - the indicator of amount or mass of the hazardous (contaminating) substance established for the operating stationary source and (or) set of the operating stationary sources for step-by-step achievement of maximum permissible emission or the technological standard rate of emission;
