Thanks to the support of the European Commission, FERMA will organize on 18 and 19 June 2015 an ELD training in Brussels, provided by professional consultants (EFTEC and Stratus Consultants)
FERMA has now a long involvement working on the developments of the Environmental Liability Directive, attempting to convince the European legislator to not add up new financial and legal requirements to the European industries during the current review.
Since 2010, all EU countries have implemented the ELD into their national legislation. It means that your domestic environmental laws have been shaped by this European law as regards damages to biodiversity, water and soil and the ways to remediate them.
In case of environmental damage, it is therefore crucial for a risk manager to understand and be able to cooperate with local environmental protection authorities in judging if the ELD applies, in assessing and quantifying the damage and in planning a proportionate remediation.
Unfortunately, please note that for logistic reasons, seats are limited to 15 persons and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis until Tuesday 16 June.
