States condemned over EU green rule failures

UK rapped over noise assessment law, Greece over ODS handling qualifications, Luxembourg over car CO2 labelling

Three member states were condemned by the European court of justice on Thursday over failures to implement EU environmental laws.  Judges ruled against the UK over a failure to transpose a 2002 law on environmental noise assessment; against Greece for failing to set minimum qualifications for workers handling ozone-depleting substances, and against Luxembourg for failing to report on the implementation of EU legislation requiring CO2 emission labels on new cars.  See ECJ judgements against UK in case C-138/06, Greece in case C-390/05 Luxembourg in case C-198/06.
