About this book

Environmental health law is a wide ranging, detailed and complex body of law within the UK. Environmental Health Procedures is an established and essential reference source which provides an accessible entry into enforcement and administrative procedures for environmental health. The main legal procedures used in the environmental health field are presented as flow charts supported by explanatory text.

The structure of this eighth edition has been revised for ease of use, with each chapter now addressing a single topic instead of a piece of legislation. It also introduces legal guidance for environmental health practitioners to prepare them for the court prosecutions that are an essential part of their work. Bassett's Environmental Health Procedures has been updated throughout to reflect new practices, legislation and statutory guidance including:
- Primary Authorities
- Authorisations for public water supplies
- Infectious disease control
- Port Health
- Environmental permitting
- Environmental damage
- Imported food
- Empty homes
- Licensing of housing
- Licensing of gambling activities

Environmental Health Officers/Practitioners and students will find Bassett's Environmental Health Procedures invaluable. It will also be a valuable reference for all those whose responsibilities demand they keep abreast of current environmental health practices.

Bill Bassett authored the previous seven editions of Environmental Health Procedures, the first of which appeared in 1983. His dedication to navigating and clarifying the revelant regulations and laws in this book has aided countless environmental health practitioners in the UK and beyond. In this latest edition, he has passed the baton to Tim Deveaux, but remained on hand to help both the new author and the publisher throughout. The eighth edition continues in the spirit of Bill's classic book, and is the first to have his name in the title.

Tim Deveaux is an independent environmental health practitioner with 36 years of public sector experience in a wide range of areas in environmental health and sustainability. His experience includes developing and implementing strategies to change behaviour, and protecting the environment and human health, particularly in planning for, and implementing, climate change and sustainability solutions.
