P-005131-18
Question for written answer P-005131-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Michel Reimon (Verts/ALE)

 Subject:  Public consultation on the Water Framework Directive, Groundwater Directive and Floods Directive
 Answer in writing 

Public consultations are run by the Commission to give EU citizens an easy way to participate in EU decision-making processes. The public consultation on the Water Framework Directive, Groundwater Directive and Floods Directive was opened on 17 September 2018. At the time of writing (8 October 2018), however, it is still necessary to register and create an EU Login account in order to participate — a significant obstacle. Only one other consultation, which was published on the same day, requires this additional step to be completed. All other consultations can be accessed without a login. What is more, this public consultation can only be opened in English and is not available in all the official EU languages.

1. Why has the technical obstacle of a requirement to log in only been added for these two consultations?

2. What criteria does the Commission use to decide whether a technical obstacle such as this should be added or not?

3. Why has the consultation questionnaire not yet been translated into any other official EU languages?
