ENABLING TRANSFORMATIVE CHANGE

Stepping up implementation and enforcement of EU environmental legislation

Updated on: 2021-12-14


Deadline: 2020

Summary: On 6 October 2021 the EU adopted the Aarhus Regulation that allows for increased public scrutiny of EU acts affecting the environment. The Commission had proposed the amendment in October 2020, following its commitment under the European Green Deal to improve access to administrative and judicial review at EU level for citizens and environmental non-governmental organisations. The revised Regulation improves the possibilities for civil society to request that EU institutions review their acts with the aim to ensure better environmental protection and a more effective climate action. Under the new rules, applicants may request review of administrative acts of EU institutions that contravene EU environmental law. The challenged acts may be administrative acts of individual scope, but also of general scope and may be adopted in any policy area. In addition to environmental NGOs, applicants may also include, under certain conditions, individuals, or groups of concerned members of the public.
