Evaluation and Fitness Check of the Zoos Directive by the European Commission
The European Commission has published a Roadmap that aims at the thorough evaluation of the Zoos Directive 1999/22/EC as part of the Commission's Regulatory Fitness and Performance programme (REFIT). The evaluation looks at past and current performance and provides an assessment by five different criteria: Relevance, Effectiveness, Efficiency, EU-added value, and Coherence.
The evaluation will start in March 2016 and is planned to be completed by December 2017.
If you want to comment and give your feedback to the Commission on this initiative, please visit their Roadmaps page.
