Environment Brief Information

A reasonably priced source of environmental information


On 13 July 2017 the 62 pages of the GREAT REPEAL BILL (EU (Withdrawal) Bill) were published and presented to Parliament.  Depending on the outcome of the final negotiations, it is estimated that some 1,000 new Statutory Instruments will be required to deliver Brexit.  Some 12,000 EU legislative acts must be copied and, where appropriate, amended.  BREXIT is to be completed by 29 March 2019.  A new Section on Brexit is given together with a commentary throughout the text.  Given the recent replacement of The Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010 by The Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016, a FREE SUPPLEMENT on the 2016 Regulations is incorporated in the text.  There have been numerous amendments to legislation including The Water Supply (Water Quality) Regulations 2016 and The Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) (Amendment) Regulations 2016.  Numerous amendments to waste legislation are contained in The Waste (Meaning of Recovery) (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2016 and The Unauthorised Deposit of Waste (Fixed Penalties) Regulations 2016.  Other developments include  review and simplification of Chemicals Regulations, the entry into force of the Paris Agreement, amendment of the Montreal Protocol, numerous developments in relation to the EU and much more. Research has shown that information on environmental law and practice provides either too much or too little information. All of this necessitates a new approach - and a new handbook - “Environment Brief”. Written by a Solicitor with extensive experience of environmental law and practice in a major British plc, “Environment Brief” comprises some 1100 A5 pages in two loose-leaf Volumes and is contained in two smart, foam padded, leather-look Binders. Designed as either a stand-alone text or a companion text to “Health & Safety at Work Brief”, “Environment Brief” features both cross-referencing within its text and to the text of “Health & Safety at Work Brief”. The text is completely up to date, including the legislation cited above . Volume 1 of “Environment Brief” is comprised of an independent commentary of some 550 pages. It constitutes one stop treatment of environmental matters. Volume 2 is comprised of over 540 pages reproducing verbatim the consolidated legislative texts of Key Acts, Regulations, etc. The text states the law in England. It also states the law in general in Scotland and Wales.
