The EU Ambient Air Quality Directives

The EU Ambient Air Quality Directives is currently under revision with the focus on 3 policy areas:

Policy area 1: closer alignment of the EU air quality standards with scientific knowledge including the latest recommendations of the WHO.
Policy area 2: improving the air quality legislative framework, to increase its legal certainty and enforceability, including as regards the provisions on public information, penalties, and access to effective remedies.
Policy area 3: strengthening of air quality monitoring, modelling, and plans.

The legislative proposal is expected during the second half of 2022.
