Short Course
Environmental Legal Liability
The diversity of statutory measures, standards and requirements that companies have to comply with is increasing and changing continuously. Management and operational personnel are finding it increasingly difficult to keep track of the constant changes to the legal environment, what the requirements for legal compliance are, and how to interpret and translate them into operational requirements. A knowledge of all the applicable legal requirements is therefore essential and of strategic importance to all organisations implementing ISO 14001 management systems. Equipped with the necessary knowledge of the requirements for legal compliance, managers are better equipped to minimise or prevent risks to environmental, health and safety, and legal and financial risks and liabilities, whilst avoiding prosecution
