Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


Directive 85/337/CEE requires the Commission to send a report to the European Parliament and to the Council, within five years of the date on which the directive itself was notified to the member states, relating to the application and effectiveness of the directive. The report was published in April 1993. This contribution contains a brief discussion of the main aspects of the report, examining the conformity of national legislations with the Community directive, the application of the directive in member states, and making some final considerations which include a discussion on the difficulties of transferring the directive into national law and the practical difficulties encountered in applying the directive.
