Conformity checking of measures of Member States to transpose Directives in the sector of the Environment and Climate Change – Service request DG Clima 2nd round 2013
Client: DG CLIMA
Pursuant to Article 258 of the TFUE, the Commission shall ensure that the Member States fulfil their obligations under the Treaties. As part of it, it shall check that the EU environmental Directives are fully and correctly transposed in the EU-28.
This contract resulted from the third call-down issued by DG Clima under the Framework Contract held by Milieu to check the conformity of measures adopted by Member States to transpose Directives in the sector of the Environment and Climate Change.
It involved the completion of tables of concordance and the drafting of conformity studies for the transposition in 15 Member States of Directive 2009/29/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 April 2009 amending Directive 2003/87/EC so as to improve and extend the greenhouse gas emission allowance trading scheme of the Community.
The Commission used these studies as background information to ensure accordance with Article 258 of the TFUE.
