The 6th EAP requires the Commission to "evaluate the progress made in its implementation together with associated environmental trends and prospects" (mid-term review). In order to prepare this mid-term review report, the Commission broadly consulted interested parties on the progress made so far with the implementation of the 6th EAP actions. This included a Member State consultation, an expert panel meeting on 26/04/2006, input from social partners, business associations, eco-innovation industry and NGO. Finally, an on-line public consultation was held from 29th May to 17th July 2006.
The Commission adopted its mid-term review report on the 30th April 2007. The report will be subsequently presented to and discuss by the European Parliament and the Council.
