I'm writing an essay about bioremediation by micro-organisms but I can't find any information about regulations for bioremediation in Europ. Is it allowed? Which bacteria can be used? Are their lists of allowed bacteria? Can you only do biostimulation or also bioaugmentation? I hope someone can help me. Thanks!

Dear student,

The EEA produces reports on the state and trends of the environment in Europe. Please be aware that European environmental legislation is beyond the Agency’s working remit. The EEA neither sets nor enforces environmental policies. 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 “Summaries of EU legislation” website presents the main aspects of EU legislation in a concise, easy-to-read and unbiased way. You can find the section on environmental legislation at:
http://europa.eu/[…]/index_en.htm

You may also find useful information in the website of the Directorate General Research & Innovation (http://ec.europa.eu/research/index.cfm). You may especially be interested in an European Commission sponsored research on the safety of the GMO (http://ec.europa.eu/[…]/05-index.html). Another source of information might be the Community Research and Development Information Service (Cordis):
http://cordis.europa.eu/home_en.html.
A number of works focusing on Bioremediation can be found in their website (http://cordis.europa.eu/sea[…]y=RELEVANCE@sortOrder=DESC9
