Is legislation a part of the EEA's working remit?

The EEA is producing reports on the state and trends of the environment in Europe. European environmental legislation is beyond the Agency’s working remit. The EEA neither sets nor enforces environmental policies and standards.
The EU Commission has the responsibility of making new legislative proposals. These proposals are then adopted by the Council and the parliament, and implemented in the Member States by the national authorities. The Commission has the responsibility of overseeing that Member States act in accordance with EU law.
The role of the EEA is to supply all parties concerned with relevant environmental information.
