Local information and public dialogue organisations bring together operators, employees, local residents, the relevant local authorities and monitoring administrations.
This is where the operator can present his actions and environmental performance and where the Inspectorate can present its objectives and action results. This is why these bodies should be the place where specific industrial issues are discussed and where risk culture is shared. While some of them are controlled by national directives under the law, others are more informal, such as SPPPIs (Permanent Secretariat for the Prevention of Industrial Pollution).
It should be pointed out that consultation does not mean joint decision : the role and responsibilities of inspectors, Prefects and mayors remain the same.

3Permanent Secretariats for the Prevention of Industrial Pollution (SPPPI) 3
They constitute a place of debate focusing on the major issues associated with the industrial risks to individuals and the impact of industrial activities on the environment.
They provide information to the public in an unbiased and transparent manner on issues relating to the industrial environment.
There is no constituent legislation. Its informal structure is based on the common will of local stakeholders. A decree is being drafted to give them a more formal legal structure.
