Environmental Law Handbook (Vol 1 and 2)
By Andrew Waite
Environmental Law Handbook is a compilation of all statutes, statutory instruments, and European Union legislation. The book also includes statutory guidance, EU materials, and international coverage. Published in association with the Environment Agency, this fourth edition contains a raft of new legislation, as well as all legislation that has remained current since publication of the previous edition in 2003. It is arranged in five parts to ensure each area of the law is easy to access. Within each part, the material is arranged chronologically, while an index will guide the reader to the relevant provisions on particular topics. Key legislation included in the fourth edition includes: Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 * Environmental Protection Act 1990 * Water Industry Act 1991 and Water Resources Act 1991 * Human Rights Act 1998 * Pollution Prevention and Control Act 1999 * Clean Neighborhoods Act 2005 * Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006 * Climate Change Act 2008 * Regulatory Enforcement and Sanctions Act 2008. *** The comprehensive range of significant statutory instruments include: Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010 (as amended) * CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme Order 2010 * Environmental Civil Sanctions (England) Order 2010 * Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011 * Controlled Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2012. *** Other statutory guidance and international material is included, such as: new statutory guidance under Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (the contaminated land legislation) * major European environmental legislation, including the Environmental Liability Directive 2004 * Waste Framework Directive 2008 * Industrial Emissions Directive 2010 * Kyoto Protocol * Aarhus Convention. *** Environmental Law Handbook is the only single set compendium of all requisite statutory material on environmental law available. As such, it is an indispensable companion for environmental lawyers (barristers and solicitors) in private practice, in-house legal departments, local government, central government, and government agencies. It is also a helpful reference source for environmental consultants, companies with a large environmental footprint, water and sewerage companies, universities, environmental insurance brokers, and environmental underwriters. *** About the editor: Andrew Waite is widely experienced in environmental law, with a substantial practice in the area of contaminated land, waste management, water, noise and pollution control law, as well as nature conservation issues and environmental liabilities. He is a former Vice Chair for Western Europe of the World Conservation Union (IUCN) Commission on Environmental Law and current Vice President and former President of the European Environmental Law Association, and was co-founder and first Secretary of the UK Environmental Law Association.
