As part of a new strategy for 1997-2000, the Regional Environmental Centre for Central and Eastern Europe (REC) is to expand its support for countries involved in EU accession negotiations. The organisation plans to organise up to 20 workshops a year for accession countries to discuss environmental issues with representatives of the European Commission and EU governments. Having begun its life primarily supporting environmental groups, the centre is also to expand its work with industry. One new project will aim to help industry in central and eastern European countries to use environmental management systems. Another aims to set up national professional associations for the environmental consultancy sector. In particular, REC wants to establish quality standards and certification procedures for environmental auditors.
