92 National Environment Protection Council NEPC Acts Third Review 2012 SUPPORTING STRUCTURES Implementation plans are developed as part of the impact assessments for proposed new directives. These plans provide support by mapping implementation issues at a preliminary stage. They identify all main risks for implementing a new directive and develop appropriate risk management responses ensuring implementation is considered from the commencement of policy development. Correlation tables are another complementary tool to the directive setting process. They are developed by member states to demonstrate how each element of a directive has been transposed into local law. They provide an easily assessable overview of the implementation of the directive for the European Commission, which can also then be used by those regulated to determine relevant local provisions across borders and is also accessible to the general public. Transparency is important in the directive-setting process. In addition to the transparency provided by the structures discussed above there is open disclosure on the European Commission website of summary information on all proceedings against member states for failing to meet directive requirements. This transparency is a visible driver of compliance among member states. Cooperation between member states is an important accompanying measure to the directives system. The European Union has in place advisory committees not dissimilar to the senior officials committee structure under ministerial councils in Australia. It also has less formal networks such as the European Union Network for the Implementation and Enforcement of Environmental Law, which is very similar in operation to the Australasian Environmental Law Enforcement and Regulators network in Australia but also includes a significant policy element.
