Public Consultation On the Review of Annexes I and II of the Groundwater Directive
EuCheMS responded to the European Commission Public Consultation on the revision of Annexes I and II of the Groundwater Directive (2006/118/EC). On July 2013, the European Commission launched a public consultation on the revision of Annexes I and II of the Groundwater Directive. Article 10 of the Groundwater Directive requires the Commission to review Annexes I and II of the Directive every six years and come forward with legislative proposals, if appropriate. The objective of the consultation was to gather views for the first review of the Annexes concerning groundwater quality standards and the threshold values for groundwater pollutants and indicators of pollution. EuCheMS submitted its contribution based on the input from EuCheMS Division and experts from EuCheMS member societies.
