Conformity checking of measures of Member States to transpose Directives in the sector of the Environment and Climate Change – Service request DG Environment 2nd round 2013
Client: DG Environment
Pursuant to Article 258 of the TFUE, the Commission must ensure that the Member States fulfil their obligations under the Treaties. As such, it must check that the EU environmental Directives are fully and correctly transposed in the EU-28.
This contract resulted from the second call-down issued by DG Environment under the Framework Contract held by Milieu. The purpose was to check the conformity of measures adopted by Member States and to transpose Directives in the sector of the Environment and Climate Change.
It involved the completion of tables of concordance and the drafting of 29 conformity studies for directives from different sectors of the environment, including waste, water and air. This project focused principally on Directive 2010/75/EU (Industrial Emissions Directive – 13 countries) and Directive 2010/63/EU (Laboratory Animals Directive- 7 countries).
The Commission used these studies as background information in its function to ensure accordance with Article 258 of the TFUE.
