Belgium’s ministries responsible for environmental and energy affairs are actively preparing draft legislation aimed at enhancing the standards governing the export of fuels. Officials from these ministries have communicated this initiative to Reuters, aligning Belgium’s efforts with a recent undertaking by the Netherlands earlier this year.
The anticipated timeline for the completion of this draft legislation is approximately two weeks, and pending any significant political obstacles, it may be enacted into law by February of the following year, as stated by the Ministry of Environment.
