Air Quality Legislation
European Community legislation is created as Directives. These Directives must then be incorporated into the laws of each Member State. Directives focus only on the desired result and leave each Member State to consider how they will meet the requirements.
In European Legislation the UK Government represents the Member State. However, in the UK, Environmental issues tend to be devolved. As such it is for the Devolved Administrations to address them separately. The Directives passed by the European Union (EU) about air quality provide the framework for the Air Quality Strategy and Local Air Quality Management in Wales.
