Dear Bkr 1964,

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 role of the EEA is to supply all parties concerned with relevant environmental information.
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
DG Environment is the branch of the Commission responsible for European environmental policy and legislation. The homepage of the DG Environment is located at:
http://ec.europa.eu/environment/

The European Commission is responsible for ensuring that Community law is correctly applied. Anyone may lodge a complaint with the Commission against a Member State about any measure, which is considered to be incompatible with Community law.
Anyone who considers lodging a complaint with the Commission is invited, before or at the same time, to seek redress from the national administrative or judicial authorities (including the national or regional ombudsman and/or arbitration and conciliation procedures available), because of the advantages they may offer for complainants. Internet and postal addresses of relevant national authorities can be obtained at:
http://www.asser.nl/default.aspx?site_id=7&level1=12222

At the following links, you can read more about European Commission infringement proceedings for non-compliance with Community law Principles.
