The LOCSEE output Guidelines for the Coordinated Transfer of EU Legislation in the Field of Climate Change is now available for download on the project website. The guidelines are targeted primarily to beneficiary countries of the Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance, which are required to align their national legislation with the acquis communitaire in the fields of climate action and ozone layer protection before full EU membership is granted. The document aims to facilitate understanding of each binding instrument by means of an overview of the main obligations, tools, institutional innovations, and quantitative and qualitative targets. It also identifies interconnections among different legislative acts in the interests of coherent and efficient implementation, and outlines the evolution of EU climate legislation by listing related amendments and repeals. The first section of the document comprises a set of factsheets, grouped by sector, each analysing an EU legislative act related to climate change. This section also includes a list of legislative proposals currently under discussion, anticipating the future development of EU law in this field. In the second section, synergies are identified on the basis of the numerous cross-references contained in the analysed acts, and recommendations are made for more coherent and efficient implementation at national level.
