EFA – Committee of Regions stakeholder/expert consultation on air quality

In May the European Federation of Allergy and Airway Diseases Patients Association (EFA) was invited to present the views of patients in a stakeholder/expert consultation organised by the representative of the EPP for the Netherlands and rapporteur of the opinion on the air quality package in the Committee of Regions.

As part of the Commission for the Environment, Climate Change and Energy, Mr Lamers is currently preparing an opinion on the EU Commission Clean Air Package for Europe package which came out last December.

During the meeting, stakeholders were asked about their views on various aspects of the national emissions ceiling and medium combustion plants directives. EFA’s EU Policy Advisor Roberta Savli took part in the meeting and, after consultation with members, provided written comments.

EFA will continue to provide opportunities for their members to be consulted and involved in the forthcoming decision-making process.

The draft of the opinion is available here
