EU - Air Quality

Status

Back To Top

The EU has established a comprehensive set of air quality objectives with two directives on air quality and the National Emission Ceilings Directive (NECD). The directives on air quality provide limits for airborne concentrations of the key pollutants and the NECD gives overall national and EU-wide limits for emissions. The current National Emission Ceilings Directive was published in December 2016 and provides national emission reduction commitments that are applicable from 2020.
