Dear NCesari,
EEA aims to support the development and implementation of sound environmental policies in the EU and other EEA member countries by delivering timely, targeted, relevant and reliable information to policy-makers and the public. This is accomplished by collecting environmental data through Eionet (the European Environmental Information and Observation Network). Based on the compiled data the EEA produces environmental reports and indicators, which assist the European Community in its attempt to improve the environment and move towards sustainability in Europe.

As you may see from this description, 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 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.

I therefore suggest that you contact the European Commission. The Directorate General for Environment is the branch of the Commission responsible for European environmental policy and legislation. The homepage of the DG Environment is located at:

Relevant contact details can be viewed at:

Hopefully, this information will be useful to you.
