Description (short summary):
On 22 December 2004, action was taken regarding the implementation of the Environmental Information Act (Umweltinformationsgesetz, UIG). The Directive has been implemented on federal and state level.

On a federal level, the Act which came into force on 14 February 2005, addresses the Information Agencies of the federal government. According to the Environmental Information Law, the cost for providing information depends on the Official Acts of each separate Information Agency dealing with the implementation of the Environmental Information Act (UIG, Cost Regulation) adopted based on §12 of the Act.

On state level, the amended Directive has been implemented by the Environmental Information Provinces and it addresses the Information Agencies of both the states and municipalities. The states share the cost of access to information in each separate case. More information can be found at section 6.
