This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of the main problems of EC environmental law: the flawed and belated Member State transposition (of directives), as well as insufficient application and enforcement of those rules. It explains how the concept of individual rights is understood in Community law. It then outlines the characteristic features of EC environmental law, in particular as concerns its status in the Treaty and the ECJ's role in its development.
