Motions and Complaints

CEI handles motions concerning damage or endangering the environment, and complaints of improper behaviour of official persons or againts procedure of an administrative body, according to the statutory framework of:

  • Act. no. 500/2004 Coll. Rules of Administrative procedure from 24 June 2004
  • Act. No. 85/1990 Coll. providing for the petition right from 27 March 1990 

Investigations of motions and complaints represent cca. 9% of activities of CEI. Motions and complaints are an important element of CEI's communication with the public. The civil public often calls attention to violations of the law which would otherwise remain unrevealed. Rightful motions are the point of departure for further procedure of the CEI, i.e. an administrative procedure of punitive nature or an administrative procedure to impose remedial measures. Some motions are also submitted to other bodies of public administration (state administration or self-government) for investigation.

Another important element of resolving the motions and complaints is represented by increasing the legal awareness of the public in the field of environmental protection.

Motions, complaints, initiatives or petitions can be lodged with any of the following addresses:
