RIS - Open public consultation - Have your say!

News > RIS - Open public consultation - Have your say!

As you might have heard, the European Commission is currently conducting an evaluation of Directive 2005/44/EC on harmonised river information services. Extensive stakeholder consultation activities form an integral part of this evaluation, ranging from very detailed questionnaires and interviews to open public consultation activities. On 8 August we have launched the open public consultation, where every interested citizen and organisation has the possibility to express their opinion by filling a short and easy to answer questionnaire, available in all languages of the European Union.

Your contributions are of great value to us as they allow us to better understand how the framework of the Directive plays out in the everyday life of the sector. Your responses and any submitted evidence will feed directly into the retrospective assessment (evaluation) of the RIS Directive. In addition, the results of all stakeholder consultation activities will be published as an annex to the evaluation on DG MOVE’s website for inland waterways (European Commission > Transport > Transport modes > Inland waterways) once the Commission's evaluation is finalised.
