EC urges Poland to comply with EU waste legislation.

By bne IntelliNews October 28, 2011
The European Commission is taking action against Poland in two cases concerning waste legislation and has called on the country to comply within two months, the EC has announced. If it fails to do so, the Commission may refer the cases to the EU Court of Justice. "In the first case the Commission has identified several shortcomings in the transposition of EU legislation on the management of waste from extractive industries into Polish national legislation. In the second, the Commission has concerns about Poland's failure to adequately transpose the EU legislation on packaging waste. The Commission identified these shortcomings in a letter of formal notice sent to Poland on 17 February 2011. As amendments are yet to be adopted despite Polish commitment to amend its national law, he Commission is sending a reasoned opinion.
