The Directorate General for Environment of the European Commission is currently performing an evaluation (aka Fitness Check) of multiple Directives to assess whether the current regulatory framework is "fit for purpose."
The Directives being evaluated are:
- Water Framework Directive (WFD, 2000/60/EC), and its 'daughter Directives':
- Floods Directive (FD, 2007/60/EC).
The Directorate is seeking input from both the general public and experts in day-to-day implementation. The open public consultation is currently ongoing through March 12, 2019: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/better-regulation/initiatives/ares-2017-5128184/public-consultation_en. The questionnaire for experts open through March 29, 2019, and is accessible here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/supportFCWFDFD.
