Notwithstanding the provisions of Article 15.3.8, the competent authority can, in accordance with Article 15.8.10, decide that no further remediation measures be taken if:

  1. the remediation measures already put in place guarantee no significant danger of a negative impact on human health, water or protected species and natural habitats;
  2. the cost of the remediation measures to be put in place to achieve the reference condition or a similar level would not be proportional to the environmental benefits thus obtained.
