Please be informed that European environmental legislation is beyond the Agency’s working remit. The EEA neither sets nor enforces environmental policies and does not have legal mandate for providing legal or technical assistance for legal complaints and no powers of investigation related to the issue you raise.

It is the European Commission which has the responsibility of overseeing that Member States act in accordance with EU law. Anyone may lodge a complaint with the European Commission against a 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.

The individual EU member countries are responsible for implementing EU policies, hence you may find it useful to contact the responsible national authorities in the country of interest for practical examples on how EU legislation is implemented into national law. Relevant contact links to European national authorities can be obtained at: .

Hopefully you will find this information useful.
