European Commission Enforcing the Strategic Environmental Assessment Directive

The European Commission has issued a final notice to 11 nations

Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Greece, Spain, Finland-Aland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal and Slovakia

for failing to finalize national legislation implementing the Strategic Environmental Assessment directive.  A referral to the European Court of Justice and ultimately monetary penalties could follow.  Link: EUROPA - Rapid - Press Releases.  This action was accompanied by similar enforcement action regarding electrical wastes, noise, and public information access.
