Proposed Directive on Environmental Liability Legal Affairs Ctee vote, 2nd December 2003

Dear MEP,

We are writing to provide you with our views of the Report of Mr Manders, and the associated amendments which are scheduled to be voted on the 2nd.

We acknowledge the fact that many efforts have been made to try to achieve a harmonised and workable system, applicable in all Member States, for the protection and safeguard of the Environment.

We also consider that the Council approach as adopted in its Common Position was an improvement following the 1st Reading in the European Parliament.

Nevertheless, EuropaBio has serious concerns with two specific aspects proposed for inclusion in the Directive that would seriously undermine the legal certainty on which industry bases its business.
