On 18 January 2011, the Commission discussed the progress on the EU's air policy with particular emphasis on the National Emission Ceilings Directive. As a result of this debate, the Commission agreed measures to improve air quality since action was recognised as a pressing need and a shared responsibility requiring our joint efforts. Commission action will focus on a number of immediate measures and a more comprehensive review of EU's air policy by 2013 at the latest. For the wider air policy review, the Commission will launch a first public consultation in 2011. Furthermore, a number of studies and support projects will be started and a stakeholder group established.
