Complete title:
Public access to environmental information – Experience gained in the application of Directive 2003/4/EC

Description (short summary):
Member States were under an obligation to report by 14 August 2009 to the European Commission on the experience gained in the application of the European Directive 2003/4/EC on public access to environmental information. This Directive was transposed into UK law on 21 December 2004, as the Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

The Regulations came into effect on 1 January 2005 and cover England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 were made on 30 November 2004 and came into effect on 1 January 2005. National legislation, which deals with access to non environmental information, the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Freedom of information (Scotland) Act 2002, also came into force on 1 January 2005.
