Through our partners BiPRO GmbH, the EC's Environment Directorate-General commissioned us to "provide and elaborate information for the preparation of the implementation report of Directive 2006/21/EC on the management of waste from extractive industries".
The project assisted the European Commission with:
(1) assessing the completeness of submitted national implementation reports, using national reports and direct comment on these from National Authorities;
(2) assessing compliance with the Directive on safety measures taken and on action required in the event of accidents and events, by comparing actions taken and reported by Member States with the requirements of the Directive; and
(3) identifying other sources of information that would help assess compliance with the Directive,

and thereby assessed the progress and outcomes of the implementation of the Extractive Waste Directive by the EU Member States.
