Judicial Review Procedure
Ireland is a signatory of the Aarhus Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision Making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters. This is an international convention, which is implemented in the EU by two Directives:
- Directive 2003/4/EC (http://www.ocei.gov.ie/en/AccesstoInformationontheEnvironment-LegislativeFramework/Directive20034EC/) on Public Access to Information on Environmental Matters;
- Directive 2003/35/EC (http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=CELEX:32003L0035:EN:NOT) on Public Participation in respect of the Drawing up of Certain Plans and Programmes relating to the Environment.
Under the provisions of Directive 2003/35/EC, members of the public are entitled to appeal relevant decisions of public bodies by way of judicial review. Information on the judicial review procedure is available in the pdf document Judicial Review Procedure.
