Equally important is full regard for environmental liability when entering into everyday commercial and commercial property transactions.

This is supported by the necessary background information on environmental protection legislation, including the general principles, measurement and controls, regulatory bodies, the EU and enforcement of the law. There are also forms and precedents for entering into transactions and seeking permission to undertake new operations. * Examines commercial environmental liability in relation to everyday issues faced by commercial law practitioners * Looks at compliance procedures for efficient administration * Sets out the safeguards for commercial and property transactions so that environmental liabilities can be identified and dealt with * Contains forms and precedents for commercial and property transactions * Details the procedures to follow when developing business operations which will be affected by environmental legislation
