Each Member State of the EU has its own terminology regarding legislation in general and mining legislation in specific. Terms and definitions are often translated in English in a very diverse manner due to the absence of a comprehensive common glossary.
This glossary reflects the scope of the Guide and includes key terms, concepts, acronyms, and abbreviations. It is a combination of legal definitions, extracted from the Greek Mining and Quarrying legislation, and technical definitions which are originating from other documents. Therefore, the source of the definition is always indicated.
