The House of Commons environment, food and rural affairs committee is to look into preparations for the end of life vehicles (ELV) directive and the waste electrical and electronic equipment directive.
Following a report by the Government's better regulation task force in July, the Committee will look at preparations made for the implementation of each directive and to scrutinise the role played by government in negotiating each directive originally.
In the case of the ELV directive, they will look at its subsequent transposition into national law to ascertain whether there are any lessons to be learnt. The committee will particularly examine the capacity of the department for environment, food and rural affairs and its agencies to deal with the implications of each directive. The deadline for written evidence is Friday 24 October 2003. (AEG desktop.com
