we have been assigned for work in barcelona .spain ,and we are shocked by the bad quality of air ,all year round ,and the exccessive ,defeaning noise ,produced by then motobikes thatwould not be allowed to run on the streets in any developed ,western country.the problem is really bad because the government allows all vehicles to drive in the center without having to pay a toll or congestion charges ,as is the norm nowdays in most european cities.the situation is so bad that we have already requested to be tranfered to another city in another country.

Hello,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

The EEA produces reports on the state and trends of the environment in Europe in its attempt to improve the environment and move towards sustainability in Europe.

Please be aware that European environmental legislation is beyond the EEA’s working remit. The EEA neither sets nor enforces environmental policies and has no mandate for providing legal or technical assistance for complaints relating to environmental legislation, and no powers of investigation related to the issue you raise in your email. Unfortunately, therefore, we are not able to help you.

Under the Treaty establishing the European Community, the European Commission is responsible for ensuring that European Community law is correctly applied. Anyone may lodge a complaint with the European Commission against a European Member State about any measure, which is considered to be incompatible with Community law. However, to be admissible, a complaint has to relate to an infringement of Community law by a Member State.

You may contact the Directorate-General for the Environment of the European Commission directly http://ec.europa.eu/environment/contact/form_en.htm, or register a complaint at http://ec.europa.eu/[…]/complaints_en.htm.
See also http://ec.europa.eu/environment/legal/law/complaints.htm

You may also contact the unit dealing with complaints in the Directorate General for the Environment of the European Commission at the following address:

Mr. Aurel Ciobanu-Dordea
Director "Implementation, Governance and Semester"
DG Environment
European Commission
200 rue de la Loi
BE-1049 Bruxelles

I hope this information may be useful to you.

Kind regards,
