Information on parliamentary scrutiny

On 12 February 2009, the Dutch House of Representatives voted in favour of a letter to the European Commission expressing their concern about both the subsidiarty and the proportionality of the recast of the energy performance of buildings directive. The subsidiarity concerns lie in the fact that housing is not a cross-border phenomenon. The proportionality concerns are the level of detail of the proposed directive and the feared administrative burden.
