UKELA will endeavour to update the site regularly but you should check that any information is still in date.. Environmental law is the body of law that seeks to protect or enhance the environment.. It is nothing new.. How did it start?.. There have been laws aimed at protecting or improving the environment since at least Old Testament times (Deuteronomy 23: 12-13, which concerns sewage disposal).. From such beginnings a wide variety of laws have been developed to protect the environment.. Early laws, often focused on the protection of rights associated with the ownership of property could, indirectly, protect the environment.. More recent laws have been made to protect the environment itself.. Globally, environmental laws apply in many countries and states and grant wide rights (such as the right to a clean and healthy environment which is, for example, part of the Indian Constitution).. Environmental laws cover a huge variety of issues from the local (e.. g.. noise control) to the global (e.. climate change control).. How does it work in the UK?.. In the UK the environment is generally defined to mean air, water and land.. The regulatory bodies charged with responsibility for protection of the environment are principally:.. the Environment Agency (which covers England and Wales).. the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency.. the Department of the Environment in Northern Ireland.. local authorities.. Law and Your Environment public information website.. Law and Your Environment, is the online guide to Environmental Law, mainly covering England and Wales.. Have you got an environmental problem? The kind of problems covered are: fly tipping; noisy neighbours; graffiti; litter; dog mess; pollution; planning; wildlife; rights of way.. You can find out where to go for help, who the regulator is and how to approach them, how the legal system works, and follow  ...   international Conventions and Agreements.. International Treaties seek to regulate issues as diverse as Climate Change, International Waste Shipments and Public Access to Justice, Access to Environmental Information and Participation in Environmental Decision Making.. How things are changing.. Increasingly the fixed emission limit controls that dominated the last century have been replaced or complemented by voluntary and market based approaches to controlling pollution and protecting the environment (e.. the Packaging Waste Regulations and the Emissions Trading Regulations).. As we move into the 21st Century, environmental laws which are enforceable against a relatively small industry sector, for example, waste management, will indirectly affect everyone.. Operators in such sectors seeking to comply with environmental laws will place restrictions on their customers and this will affect the marketplace, and so influence many day to day decisions, e.. the ban on ozone-depleting CFCs led to changes in the design of fridges and aerosols.. Environmental law was one of the faster developing areas of law at the end of the last century.. It is difficult to find an area where rules do not apply.. Such laws are often very detailed, sometimes deeply technical, at times over-complicated and arguably in places the framework appears incoherent.. Despite this, the environment in the UK is highly regulated, arguably better protected and appears in many areas to be in a better state than it was 25 years ago.. A question that has yet to be satisfactorily answered is whether the same or better environmental outcomes can be achieved in a more efficient manner.. The European Commission and the UK Government are increasing looking at whether the burden and design of environmental regulation is appropriate.. There have been a number of recent reviews and consultation papers on these issues but with the exception of the environmental permitting programme in England and Wales neither body has yet to make significant progress in this area.. Ultimately it would be foolish to suggest that many environmental issues can be satisfactorily addressed by environmental laws alone.. The issue of what to do with waste is a good example.. There are laws at every level to address the waste problem yet too much waste is produced and not nearly enough is recovered.. We are running out of room for landfill.. Incineration or using waste as a substitute fuel are deeply unpopular.. Everyone from trans-national corporations to the individual consumer - has a part to play in solving this challenge, which the astonishingly complex web of environmental laws cannot solve alone.. If you are interested in a particular area of environmental law, you may like to join one of.. UKELA s Working Parties.. that meet to discuss and comment upon developments.. Top of page.. Back..
