Roadmap: Fitness check of the EU Ambient Air Quality Directives

Air quality has improved across Europe over the past decades, as emissions of many pollutants were curbed successfully. Nevertheless, significant compliance gaps for some key pollutants prevail – most noteworthy exceedances are for particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide and to a certain extent the ozone target values. This fitness check will look at the performance of the two complementary EU Ambient Air Quality (AAQ) Directives (Directives 2008/50/EC and 2004/107/EC).
