Environmental Law - Information
 

The Environmental Information Regulation 1992 enacts EU Directive on Freedom of Access to Information on the Environment 90/313..

Under the regulation each relevant authority must maintain a register of information (freely available) relating to applications for authorisations, authorisations granted, variation of enforcement and prohibition notices issues, revocations of authorisations, appeals, convictions for offences, and transfers of authorisations.

The new UN 'Aarhus' Convention extends these rights. THe UK government is introducing new Environment Information Regulations to reflect this. For more about UN 'Aarhus' Convention visit
