Environmental compliance assurance describes all the ways in which public authorities promote, monitor and enforce compliance with the regulations which improve the society in which we live through enhanced environmental benefits such as clean water and breathable air.
- Promote includes creation of awareness and provision of guidance and advice to help businesses and others comply with relevant regulation and standards.
- Monitor means using inspections, environmental audits and other checks to collect information about levels of compliance and provide solid evidence for enforcement.
- Enforce means stopping those who disregard the rules and sanctioning them through official warnings, cease-and-desist orders, administrative fines, criminal prosecutions and demands to take remedial action.
Earlier this year the European Commission adopted a 9-point Action Plan to improve governance on EU environmental rules on activities. The actions will be implemented over 2018-2019 with the help of EU countries and European networks of environmental agencies, inspectors, auditors, police, prosecutors and judges.
