'Fitness check' for EU nature legislation
This consultation is designed to gather opinions on current EU nature conservation legislation (the Birds Directive and the Habitats Directive) and its implementation to date, as part of the 'fitness check' that the European Commission is carrying out under its Regulatory Fitness and Performance Programme (REFIT). The fitness check looks at whether the current regulatory framework is proportionate and fit for purpose, and delivering as expected. Specifically, it assesses the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, coherence and EU added value of the legislation. However, the fitness check does not consider possible future changes to the legislation. If required, this would be done in a separate impact assessment. The consultation runs until 24 July 2015.
Equality between men and women in the EU
This public consultation will be used to collect the views of the broad public in the context of the preparation of the Commission's policy on equality between women and men after 2015. The consultation runs until 21 July 2015.
