A training for environmental inspectors and permit writers on the implementation and enforcement of the Seveso II Directive was held in May 2009. A website was created for the event that provided background information, documentation and logistical details, as well as the opportunity to register online.
The Environmental Compliance and Enforcement Network for Accession (ECENA) is an informal network of environmental authorities from the potential candidate and candidate countries as well as the new member countries Bulgaria and Romania. The European Commission is also a member of ECENA. The main objective of ECENA is to support its members in strengthening environmental compliance and enforcement in line with the obligations assumed in the EU accession process and — where relevant — their obligations under the Stabilisation and Association Process.
