WWF Shadow Note for the Orientation Debate on the Follow-up of the Fitness Check of the EU Nature Directives. As part of its Regulatory Fitness and Performance Programme (REFIT), the Commission is undertaking a Fitness Check of the Birds and habitats Directives.

According to the Commission’s Better Regulation Guidelines, Fitness checks are intended to provide an evidence-based critical analysis of whether the regulatory framework is “fit for purpose” and delivering against its policy objectives.

The Commission is now close to completing the fitness check of the EU Birds and Habitats Directives and in this note the main findings of the evaluation as well as the options for the necessary follow-up, are outlined.
