Consultation on the draft Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee (ACCC) Plan of Action

Organisation Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications
Date 10th May 2022 05:30 PM (GMT)

Since Ireland became subject to the Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee’s non compliance mechanism in December 2013, nine non compliance cases concerning Ireland have been accepted for consideration by the ACCC.

Findings in three cases were brought to the 7th Meeting of the Parties (MOP) in October 2021. This is the first time Ireland has had non-compliance findings at the MOP.

In paragraph 5 (a) of decision VII/8i concerning Ireland’s compliance, the Meeting of the Parties to the Aarhus Convention has requested that Ireland submits to the Committee by 1 July 2022 a plan of action, including a time schedule, addressing the recommendations contained in that decision.

The Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications is now seeking views on the draft ACCC plan of action.
