Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters

Text englisch (offiziell): http://www.unece.org/env/pp/documents/cep43e.pdf

Text deutsch: http://www.unece.org/env/pp/documents/cep43g.pdf


Anmerkung: … wie beim VN-Flussgebietsübereinkommen … Deutschland hat gezeichnet (21.12.98), aber immer noch nicht ratifiziert ... und darüber hinaus bei der Zeichnung folgenden Vorbehalt erklärt:

“The text of the Convention raises a number of difficult questions regarding its practical implementation in the German legal system which it was not possible to finally resolve during the period provided for the signing of the Convention. These questions require careful consideration, including a consideration of the legislative consequences, before the Convention becomes binding under international law.

The Federal Republic of Germany assumes that implementing the Convention through German administrative enforcement will not lead to developments which counteract efforts towards deregulation and speeding up procedures.”
