This uniquely comprehensive and accessible guide provides a simple and practical explanation of the most important aspects of EC environmental law.

The effect that industry has on the environment is one factor that has forced the need for stringent regulation. The increase in legislation emanating from Brussels means that it is vital for environmental managers and their advisers to be aware of the need for compliance if they are to avoid potentially onerous penalties. EU rules also act as a guide to the national rules that apply throughout the member states and as a gauge to predict future developments. European Union Environmental Law covers: safety and protection waste management water air indoor and occupational exposure other EU environmental issues Within each section the author incorporates case studies and sets out practical advice on the environmental issues that concern industry. Each chapter also offers an assessment of the completeness and future direction of EU legislation and highlights potential problem areas for industry. European Union Environmental Law contains a glossary of EU environmental terms and a checklist offering advice on implementing an informal environmental audit. Aimed at all those within industry who are responsible for the impact of their business on the environment and all practitioners, consultants and students of EU environmental policy, this book is the essential practical guide.

This guide has been conceived as a companion to students of international study programs, who are required to take courses in environmental law, to help them navigate their way through the subject matter, especially in the area of international and European environmental law. The target group is not limited to students with previous legal knowledge; it especially includes those who are not law students but are studying law as a complementary subject. In a condensed manner, the guide provides an overview of the fundamentals and most significant developments of environmental law, focusing on international and European environmental law. This is done by deliberately making connections to German environmental law in order to illustrate and make comprehensible the interplay between international environmental law, European environmental law, and - in referring to the German case - national environmental law. Drawing on climate protection as an example of global significance, the relations between these three levels are explored in-depth and their foundations and development are discussed.

The UNECE Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-Making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters – known ubiquitously as the Aarhus Convention – is having an ever-increasing influence on domestic and EU environmental law and procedure. Recent years have seen a steady flow of case law from the UK courts, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) and the Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee, a raft of civil procedure reforms in response to concerns about whether the costs rules in domestic environmental litigation are compatible with the Convention and an infraction by the European Commission against the UK alleging various systemic breaches. Even the EU itself has been the subject of a ruling by the Compliance Committee that the CJEU's rules on standing for judicial review of EU legislation are too narrow to comply with the Convention. This book, written by several of the leading experts in the field, provides a comprehensive guide to the implementation of the Convention in each of the UK's jurisdictions, the three pillars of the Convention (access to information, public participation and access to justice) and the mechanisms by which the rights under the Convention can be enforced.

Strategic environmental assessment (SEA) is a regulatory requirement for development across Europe, North America, Australasia and elsewhere, yet understanding the legal aspects is challenging. This comprehensive guide provides that understanding in a clear and straightforward way. The introduction considers SEA and the law, explaining what SEA is, why it is needed, how it works and why it is required, as well as examining the role of the law. Part One provides an overview of international law, environmental impact assessment (EIA) and international law, including treaties, customary international law and 'soft law' relevant to SEA. It analyses the Kiev SEA Protocol and related UNECE conventions, the Espoo Convention on EIA in a Transboundary Context and the Aarhus Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters. It also analyses the role of SEA in conservation conventions. Part Two considers how the European legal system works, including an overview of the current status of European law. It examines the EIA Directive and SEA Directive together with other relevant directives and regulations, such as the Habitats and Wild Birds Directives, the Water Framework Directive, the Public Participation for Plans and Programmes Directive, and the Structural Funds Regulations. Finally the volume draws conclusions about the relationship and comparisons between international and European law generally, and in regulating SEA.
