Specialists from both the environmental protection and environmental law areas have different perceptions on the environmental legislation, due to the particularities of the regulatory and legislative acts, on one hand, and the particularities of the technical approach to the environmental quality evaluation, on the other. This study is presenting the flow of the environmental legislative process and the relationship between the environmental norms, standards and monitoring with the national, European Union (EU) and international environmental legislation. The environmental legislative flow is further completed by the contribution of legislative monitoring and legislative assessment processes, also integrating the environmental monitoring mechanisms and their particular results, turning the flow into an environmental legislative cycle. It was concluded that the environmental monitoring mechanism, used for the development of environmental legislation, is necessary to verify both its legislative effects and its intervention on further regulations.
