Article 2.2.1.

Each draft order entailing the establishment or changing of environmental quality standards is announced by the Flemish Government to the Flemish Council for the Environment and Nature, that provides reasoned opinion within a period of two months of receipt of the draft.

Insofar as necessary because of periods imposed by international obligations, the Flemish Government can shorten the advice period in the last paragraph, while respecting the minimum period determined in article 16, 2, of the decree of 18 July 2003 on the regulation of strategic advisory committees.
