 9 May 2022

Dear Llyr,


I am writing to inform you of activity of the Scottish Parliament’s Net Zero, Energy and Transport Committee in relation to provisional common frameworks.



The Committee has been sent the following common frameworks for consideration by the Scottish Government:


·         Radioactive Substances

·         Air Quality

·         Best Available Techniques/ Industrial Emissions (BAT)

·         Ozone Depleting Substances and F-gases

·         Chemicals and Pesticides


At its meeting on 19 April 2022, the Committee agreed to seek written evidence on these frameworks via a call for views. The call for views can be found below:

Net Zero, Energy and Transport Committee: Environmental Common Frameworks


The Committee will consider the responses before determining its next steps.  I would be most grateful if you were to share this call for views with your networks.


The Committee has also agreed to hold an evidence session with environmental bodies and regulators in Scotland to hear about their priorities for the session, which we anticipate will touch on the policy areas covered by the frameworks.


I would be most grateful if you were able to share details of any work you have done on any of these common frameworks.


Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require further detail on our work.


Yours sincerely,


Dean Lockhart MSP


Net Zero, Energy and Transport Committee
