Implementation Report for Mining Waste Directive and ELV Directive
In order to foster implementation of waste-related European Directives the state of national implementation among the EU-27 must be analysed and assessed. The project supports the European Commission by analysing the completeness of the national implementation reports for the End-of-life vehicles and the Mining waste Directives. Thus, it contributes to identifying outstanding requirements of the Directives and hence policy action.
As regards the End-of-life vehicles (ELV) Directive, the EU member states have already been obliged to submit two national implementation reports for periods 2002 – 2005 and 2005 – 2008. Concerning the mining waste Directive the national implementation reports for the first reporting period 2008 – 2011 are in the process of being provided to the Commission.
In order to meet project's objectives, the project team will assess the Member State's national implementation reports for both Directives for the time period 2008-2011 as to their completeness. Assessment will be based on a Excel matrix for assessing completeness of the national information in relation to the questionnaire items that the Commission has set up in two Decisions (Commission Decision 2001/753/EC for the ELV Directive, Commission Decision 2009/358/EC for the Mining Waste Directive). The national implementation reports will be summarised and analysed for information gaps, and identifying further need for policy action.
