Synthesis report of the study on the Implementation of Articles 9.3 and 9.4 of the Aarhus Convention in Seventeen of the Member States of the European Union.The aim of the study is to analyze the implementation of Article 9.3 of the Aarhus Convention on access to justice in selected Member States of the European Union. The study also covers the implementation of Article 9.4 on the effectiveness of the review procedure to the extent that it relates to situa-tions where Article 9.3 is applicable. Furthermore, the aim is to evaluate the in-fluence of the recent developments in the case law of the CJEU on the national legal systems (e.g. cases C-237/07 Janecek, C-427/07 Irish costs, C-75/08 Mellor, C-263/09 DLV, C-115/09 Trianel, C-240/09 Slovak Brown Bear, C-128/09 Boxus, etc.). However, the scope of the study does not extend to rules that are applicable to the already existing mechanisms under EU legislation on access to justice in the above mentioned directives, except in so far as these also clarify the conditions for access to justice generally or there is an overlap with the dif-ferent regimes.
