Is the basic idea of the considered national Climate change act in accordance with the international law?

Yes, it is. We conclude that the core parts of the CCA are in full accordance with the following international agreements
the Charter of the United Nations – http://www.un.org/en/documents/charter/index.shtml
the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties – http://untreaty.un.org/ilc/texts/instruments/english/conventions/1_1_1969.pdf
the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, including the Kyoto protocol – http://unfccc.int/resource/docs/convkp/conveng.pdfhttp://unfccc.int/resource/docs/convkp/kpeng.html

Also the core parts of the CCA are in full accordance with the Articles 2, 4 and 193 of the Treaty of the functioning of the European Union – http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:C:2008:115:0047:0199:EN:PDF. However, the same conclusion cannot be made about the supplementary provisions which are restricted to certain level by the EU directives and regulations.
