Public consultation: Commission seeks views on possible EU Soil Health Law
The Commission has launched an online public consultation on the development of a possible EU Soil Health Law. The EU Soil Strategy for 2030, adopted last year, announced that the Commission will table a new legislative proposal on soil health providing a comprehensive legal framework for soil protection, granting it the same level of protection that exists for water, the marine environment and air in the EU.
All interested parties are invited to contribute to the consultation which is open until 24 October 2022.
As noted in the survey, to ensure a broad feedback, the questionnaire is divided into two parts. The first part (up to q. 13) is more general and intended for everyone, while the second part (from q. 14 to q. 21) is aimed at stakeholders with some expertise on the subject. The first part of the questionnaire may be submitted without the need to complete also the second ‘expert’ part.
EUSTAFOR’s contribution is in preparation and will be submitted after being consulted with its member organizations.
