Information on parliamentary scrutiny

This proposal was considered at the Joint Committee on European Scrutiny meeting of 16th June 2009 (item 3.1):
Given that the proposed Directive is a recast exercise which does not change the basic objectives and principles of the current Directive on the energy efficiency of buildings and that it has no major implications for Ireland, it was agreed that it does not warrant further consideration by this Committee.
However, given the proposal’s relevance to the climate change agenda and that it will introduce some administrative requirements, it was also agreed that the draft Directive be forwarded to the Joint Committee on Climate Change and Energy Security and to the Joint Committee on Environment, Heritage and Local Government for information and possible consideration.
