BACKGROUND – Evaluation of the Environmental Crime Directive
DG Justice is currently evaluating the Environmental Crime Directive - Directive 2008/99/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 19 November 2008 (https://www.ejn-crimjust.europa.eu/ejn/libdocumentproperties/EN/670) on the protection of the environment through criminal law - and whether it has achieved its objectives. In the light of the results, it will be decided if some follow-up or revision is required.

The Directive requires EU Member States to treat certain activities that damage the environment as criminal offences, for instance trading endangered species, destroying protected habitats, producing, manufacturing or handling nuclear materials or any other radioactive substances, and excessive water, air or soil pollution.
