In Ireland, an environmental management system (EMS) is a core part of intensive animal
production as dictated by the integrated pollution control (IPC) licences issued under the
authority of the Irish Environmental Protection Agency. An EMS will continue to be an intricate

enterprises, which are soon to be enacted under Irelands Protection of the Environment Act 2003
(and the EUs IPPC Directive (96/61/EC)).
