What classes as an Environmental Law Breach?
The Environmental Protection Act was brought into being to enable local authorities to control air/land/River pollution. The most regular Environmental Law Breach is related to the issue of waste management and any potential breach of waste management licenses. If there is a significant or repeated breach there can be the revocation or suspension of waste management licenses. See our main Environmental Law Breach page for more helpful information.
