The proposed Soils Directive has been stalled for many years. The most recent proposal version made
under the Spanish in 2010 as blocked by several countries.
The Common Forum is a network of agencies from the Member States involved in contaminated land
regulation and policy at a national level.
Together they have developed a proposal for a revised text which deals with the issues raised by
the blocking countries, and would likely be more successful, if adopted by the European Commission.
