The public consultation is to seek the views of the general public and all stakeholders in order to help:
Assess whether legislative action at EU level would have added value in ensuring effective and non-discriminatory access to justice in environmental matters across the EU Member States (subsidiarity test)
Identify those issues where targeted EU legislative action would be needed to fulfil the objective of ensuring access to national courts in environmental matters (proportionality test)
The consultation can be found here.
