Position paper - Amending the Aarhus Regulation: an internal review mechanism that delivers the EU Green Deal

This Position Paper identifies the main deficiencies in the European Commission’s proposal to amend the Aarhus Regulation (1367/2006) and suggests appropriate amendments.

The Commission’s proposal to expand the possibilities for certain environmental NGOs to request an internal review of acts of the EU institutions is very welcome. However, the proposal contains significant loopholes which the institutions can use to avoid being held accountable and prevents the EU’s compliance with international law. Together with the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) and Justice & Environment, we call on the European Parliament and Council to remedy these shortcomings.
