Dear Madam, Sir
In regard of the ongoing implementation of measurements specified by the Mercury-Regulation (EU) 2017/852, I would like to ask for an update about which memberstates have informed the Comission so far about the implementation of the provision on penalties.
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:
- A list of which member states have notified the European Commission on the implementation of the provisions on penalties referred to in article 16 of Regulation (EU) 2017/852 of 17 May 2017
- The content of all member states' notifications of the provisions on penalties referred to in article 16 of Regulation (EU) 2017/852 of 17 May 2017
- The content of any communication from the European Commission to member states about the provisions on penalties penalties referred to in article 16 of Regulation (EU) 2017/852 of 17 May 2017
The same question was posed in Januar and August 2018 and replied with the information that 14 of 28 Member states have sent the commission documents outlining the penalties related to the mercury regulation.
Could the information regarding Article 16 of Regulation (EU) 2017/852 be uploaded to the public folder "Mercury Poliy and Regulation" on CIRCABC and updated regularly?
I'm looking forward to receiving your reply.
