The number and diversity of legal measures, standards and requirements that organisations have to comply with is expanding and changing continuously. Management and operational personnel find it increasingly difficult to keep track of changes to the legal environment and legal compliance requirements as well as the interpretation and translation of the law into operational requirements. Furthermore, internationally accepted environmental management standards demand compliance with environmental legal requirements as a minimum performance standard. Therefore, knowledge of the legal requirements is essential and of strategic importance to all organisations implementing ISO 14001 management systems, for example. Equipped with the necessary knowledge and understanding of legal compliance requirements, managers are better equipped to minimise or prevent environmental, legal and financial risks and liabilities.
The purpose of this short course is to enhance participants (operational and management personnel) understanding on the range of legal requirements related to environmental management.
