A "Best Available Techniques Reference Document" (BREF) refers to a European Union range of reference works developed to exchange information between industrial sectors and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in different member states, and the European Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control Bureau (IPCC/EIPPCB).
The EIPPCB was established in 1997 to promote the Best available technology (BAT) to reduce atmospheric pollution and promote effective monitoring of air quality.
