Entry into force notes
The Decision enters into force on the date of publication in the Official Gazette.

This Decision provides for the collection and dissemination of environmental information and access to justice in compliance with Directive 2003/4/EC of the European Council on public access to environmental information. It also regulates dissemination of environmental information through electronic databases and public telecommunication networks (article 7). Access to environmental information is ensured to any person according to article 3; every natural or legal person can access environmental information by submitting a relevant written request. The written request enters the public authority’s register (protocol) under a certain number and a registration receipt is given to the applicant. Public authorities make available environmental information to any applicant within the deadlines set by law; at the latest within 20 days after the receipt of the request by the public authority or within two months after the receipt of the request if the volume and the complexity of the information is such that the 20-day period cannot be complied with (article 3, paragraph 3). If a request is formulated in a too general manner, the public authority asks the applicant as soon as possible to specify the request and assists the applicant in doing so. If the information requested is not held by the public authority to which the request is addressed the public authority transfers the request to the competent authority within three days and informs the applicant accordingly (article 3, paragraph 4). Article 3, paragraph 7, deals with specific form and formats for providing the information requested by the applicants.
